Description

About the event

“When a publicly traded global corporation buys an even larger publicly traded global corporation, how do they merge cultures and quality systems, let alone financial systems, IT, HR, and more - all while answering leadership’s demand for operational excellence and business performance? In the case of AECOM acquiring URS and the resultant need to create a unified culture of quality and QMS, the answer lies in collaboration, a shared sense of purpose, and synergy - and quite a few off-hours conference calls. This session describes their journey, and shares seven key steps that any company can take when faced with the challenges of mergers and acquisitions and the need to create a whole greater than the sum of its parts.”
