Design and delivery of post-merger integration programmes

IBI designed and delivered four integration programmes. In the first programme, we combined training, competence assessment and coaching with bi-annual networking events for over 180 managers from all levels of the organisation. For three days in a row, managers of all backgrounds and degrees of experience learned together, networking and helping each other across country and company boundaries. The program was so successful that we were immediately asked to design and deliver three additional integration programs.
