Faster, smoother integrations help to realize acquisition value.

Cisco uses standard principles, processes, and methods to help assimilate newly acquired companies rapidly, consistently, and with minor disruption. With more than 120 acquisitions completed since 1993, Cisco is continuously improving its integration expertise by applying the standards to each new acquisition. This Cisco acquisition integration case study describes the best practices developed by the lead integration team and the Cisco human resources, sales, manufacturing, customer service, and finance departments. Benefits of acquisition integration standards include:

  • Ability to gain the value expected from each acquisition
  • Faster, more efficient, and less disruptive integration efforts
  • High levels of employee retention and easier cultural integration
  • Optimized operational infrastructure
  • Standardized, repeatable, and adaptable integration processes for each department
  • Continuous development of integration expertise across the company
