I'm pretty excited. Last week we completed and posted our very first whitepaper related to Intel IT acquisition projects! Several peers and I got together and worked up some key learnings from past projects and compiled them into a whitepaper where we discuss the various aspects of IT and how we go about integrating an acquisition into the overall Intel IT environment.
As you can probably guess, we have more than our share of challenges on such projects, and I have personally found that even the smaller, "no brainer" acquisitions each have their own unique twists and challenges.
Anyway, I'm very proud of this whitepaper, and I hope you'll take a look and post your thoughts and comments! Perhaps this will be the first of many efforts to share our experiences on M&A projects with other IT folks around the world.
