Description
There are very few circumstances where Human Resources (HR) will be under more pressure to find the right balance than through an acquisition, merger or other large scale organizational change, which is to say change involving many people. The business needs (or intended gains) of any such plan are typically very aggressive. A useful way of getting an understanding of what is involved from the HR perspective is to hear HR executives who have been through these changes discuss the how and why of decisions made and what went right or wrong in actual situations. This book includes such discussions along with checklists, specific items to take into consideration and more. The book an extension of a previous work also published by Carswell, entitled Mergers and Acquisitions: A Survival Guide by Lynne Alex. Dave Crisp has added commentary and examples that extend the original to deal with other types of large scale change – head office moves and integrations internally, outsourcing, joint ventures and more – all of which follow similar HR principles. He has also added more examples of what not to do and why, sometimes the most helpful advice one can receive. While no single book can hope to capture every possible variation, many of the concepts apply to many types of organizational change. Learn About: • Concepts/principles of dealing with mergers and acquisitions downsizings, out or in-sourcing, closures, major moves of people to new locations • The key capabilities for a successful integration • How to avoid the variety of things that can go wrong with mergers

Dave Crisp developed hundreds of leaders through seven careers in four industries, ultimately heading human resources for Hudson's Bay Company's 70,000 people through 14 years and three CEOs. His team helped it become a "best company to work for" despite more than 110 mergers and reorganizations, nearly one a month. He also led their ten million dollar Internet start-up that put joint ventures into six countries in 10 months.

Before the Bay, Dave directed personnel and collective bargaining at two Toronto hospitals following a career in education, counselling and leadership, improving one organization's performance more than 600% over three years and later running for provincial parliament. Dave holds a BA in Psychology, a Masters of Education and the CHRP - Canadian Human Resources Professional designation - as well as various education leadership qualifications.
