Nothing stays the same. Organizations are either growing or declining. But defining how to grow and where to focus your energy can be overwhelming. Illumyx makes it easy. Whether you are developing a strategy for cultural integration in the case of a merger and acquisition, or you want to focus on how to develop your existing culture to improve employee retention, Illumyx has a plan to support your strategy.


Culture Analytics to Fit your Growth Strategy

Choose your Growth Path

Merger success is possible. However, being part of the 17% that succeed - rather than the 83% that do not - requires more than a standard approach. Traditional mergers and acquisitions focus on the financial and ignore the fact that every merger is about people. People who react with emotion, fear, and survival behavior - the non-linear, often irrational reactions of human beings faced with unwanted change. And the longer people stay in a reactive state, the further your business moves from its profit objectives. That's why Cultural Due Diligence is key to the success of any merger or acquisition.

1

Assess

Know what you've got. Gain insights into your own workplace culture to understand what your organization is all about. By recognizing your strengths and gaps, you can begin understanding what attributes you need in your M&A deal.

2

Compare

Measure and compare two or more cultures at the earliest possible phase of a deal effort. Understanding the strengths and tension points between workplace cultures allows you to know what you're buying. From here you can begin assessing the cultural risk associated with your merger, which drives the creation of a realistic integration timeline.

3

Integrate

Capture the strengths of both organizations as you develop a targeted cultural integration plan. Use data to make the integration process more cognitive and less emotional. Data allows you to plan for how to overcome and resolve the culture issues that so commonly impede progress in an M&A, so you can be proactive rather than reactive.
