Who Moved My Cheese? Change Management During a Merger


When it rains, it pours, as the old adage goes, and no one is more attuned to this right now than Yahoo executives. Over the course of just a few months, the search engine company has endured a failed buyout by Microsoft, which walked away from the $47.5 billion bid; several departures of high-level executives--and the resulting scarcely populated roster of EVPs--forced a reorganization that also stripped away a layer of management. Surely a crisis of this magnitude could only befall the likes of Yahoo, whose tentacles have extended into so many crevices of business. But, the situation can serve as a springboard into a conversation that affects any exec in today's tumultuous business environment: that of change management, and how to endure shake-ups, executive departures and/or a merger and acquisition climate.
