Abstract

Offers an approach to deal with the value destruction caused when culturally incompatible organizations merge. A field-tested Cultural Comparison and Integration Model is demonstrated. The model illustrates how managers can compare and integrate cultures of combining firms using "cultural levers." A case example of the model in practice is included. The model has been tested in large and medium size organizations in a variety of industries and nationalities.
