Webinar: The good, the bad and the ugly of M&A Playbooks
Join West Monroe, Align Networks and Hospira as we discuss lessons learned from previous transactions
Date : November 24, 2014 Time : 12:00 PM CST
How do you build an M&A playbook? What works well? Where does it fall down? We'll discuss key lessons learned and our panelists from Align Networks and Hospira share their perspectives on the benefits and pitfalls of playbooks.

Merger and acquisition activity is on the rise, and many expect this trend to continue. Whether your organization is a serial acquirer or pursuing its first transaction in years, you need to be prepared. One tool that is an essential guide for many organizations is an “M&A playbook.” So, should you build or buy an M&A playbook? And how exactly should you plan to use it?

Join West Monroe's Jim Bedford and Munzoor Shaikh as we discuss how companies tackle the complexities of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. They are joined by panelists Brian Kemper, IT Program Director at Hospira, and Dean Colver, Chief Technology Officer of Align Networks, who will share their perspectives on how playbooks have helped their acquisitive organizations.
