Interesting article emphasizing the importance of integration process for the merger and acquisition activity to be a success. Just read an excellent white paper on strategies for successful merger integration http://bit.ly/pGoP25

Randy Myers wrote a commendable article with practical observations. Based on my own experience, I'd like to add one: don't nickel-and-dime the extra resources your integration team will need, not only to plan and execute the integration, but also to support the team members' day jobs during the whole process. Bring in temps and contractors for such functions as administration and IT support -- and try to get people who have worked with the organization before.
