Integrating Two Cultures

Valeria Strappa, Head of M&A Integrations and Client Relationship Management at JPMorgan Chase & Co, teaches us how to do an effective cultural integration. 

Understanding the culture of the target company is the first step to integration. Talk to the people and understand what’s important to them, how they make decisions, how they compensate their people. And from there, you can choose what behaviors you want to preserve and you don’t want to see anymore.
