Change takes time and yet it can also happen when you aren't looking. Another week goes by and before you know it, the change is now the norm. Well we are waiting and watching as the Ariba and SAP merger takes place. Like most corporate mergers, there are many steps involved. We all know that the legal aspects and subsequent paperwork will be a while for sure. However, even longer will be the changes within the organization.
Every one of us has been impacted by a merger or acquisition. The day after my husband and I closed on our first house, he was told his position was being eliminated due to a merger. My response was at least they waiting until after the closing went through!!
When I was reading this blog about mergers and acquisitions, it brought to light some areas where procurement can step in and show their value.
