Reducing people risk during mergers and acquisitions

Talent Intuition’s Pi3 is a cultural compatibility tool that works with teams immediately post-merger or acquisition. Pi3 helps you understand differences in culture across your teams, geographies, leaders and your Board to reduce people risk.

The most important factor for the success of a deal is a well-executed integration plan.


47% executives leave within 12 months of acquisition.


90% of acquisitions fall short of expectations


Productivity in the first four to five months is generally reduced by 50%


£46bn is spent each year on M&A activity that will not deliver shareholder value

We believe that acquisitive companies should identify differences in culture at the earliest possible stage in a deal lifecycle to reduce the risk of failure.

How culturally aligned are the leadership teams of both entities?

What cultural differences exist between teams?

Where are they key areas of risk due to cultural clashes?

People define the culture of an organisation and cultural clash is a barrier to effective integration.

Pi3 helps organisations identify and address key areas of people risk during mergers and acquisitions.

When cultures clash the fundamental ways of working are so different that people at all levels get frustrated, anxious and leave. Productivity falls, opportunities are lost, and clients move elsewhere.

Our clients use Pi3 to bring companies together quickly, more effectively and maximise returns in a shorter space of time.

Team integration

Differences across teams can negatively impact results. Country teams need to be aligned to maximise global opportunities and leadership teams need to be aligned to maximise efficiencies.

Employee engagement

Rolling out the tool, co-branded, at the same time as announcements to the business, acts as an engagement exercise – showing that both cultures are being explored and that the strengths from each business can be identified.

Leadership buy-in

Understanding the approach to risk, attitude to change, the focus of the teams, the workplace environment and how collaborative a company is, helps the leadership teams to gain buy-in.

Securing your future competitive advantage

“Any business has two resources it can deploy: capital and talent. There is an optimal way to deploy each and we provide intelligence to cover the talent side of the equation.”
