M&A Integration

Below is a collection of articles, papers, and studies that provide an informational background on merger integration services.  The need for assistance in this area is well documented for transactions in excess of $1 billion. Those deals are typically served by the large consulting firms.  We provide this critical service for mid-market companies, often for deal values under $100 million, where the consequences of failed M&A deals can be much greater than the consequences of failed deals for major corporations.

Herding Chickens: Innovative Techniques for Project Management 

 Publisher:  Wiley/Sybex/Harbor Light Press

Note from the author:  Dan Bradbary

I wrote this book in 2005, after selling my project management consulting company, when a publisher approached me with the idea.  I said that it would be a book written in a humorous tone, hence the title "Herding Chickens" and contain many "in-the-trench war stories" from managing projects and people.  Hopefully, you will pick up a few ideas and get a couple of chuckles along the way.  It’s basically Project Management 101.

Prior to launching PMI Advisors in 2017, I was the Founder and CEO of V-Rooms™ Virtual Data Rooms, a company that provided secure online document exchange services for thousands of M&A transactions over its 10-year history. I sold V-Rooms in 2015.

Before V-Rooms, I owned Project Management Services, Inc., which over a 12 year period grew to a 150-person consulting firm that provided management professionals and systems to assist Fortune 100 companies with their post-merger integration and other special projects.
