Session 16

Acquisition Strategy Processes and Practice

Track S

Date: Friday, March 19, 2010


Time: 10:15 – 11:45

Parallel Panel

Room: Kabinetti

Session Chair:


This panel brings together experts on the strategic management of mergers and acquisitions from both the academic and practice domains. The aim of the panel is to initiate and engage in a dialogue between academics and practitioners on the state of the art of practice and research on mergers and acquisitions. What are the key current questions on the lips of practicing managers? Do these coincide with the concerns of the researchers, should they? In parallel, the panel hopes to further enhance the bridge between these oft-disconnected worlds, and with this objective in mind poses the teasing question – is there sufficient enough a connection between the two worlds? Why (not)? In what ways are the connections strong, where could they be further enhanced? In so doing, the panel hopes to bring fresh light into the debate on mergers and acquisitions, which, despite decades of investments and experience, continue to pose challenges and headaches for the practicing managers.
