Advice/Book Suggestions - Department "merger"

  • 1.  Advice/Book Suggestions - Department "merger"

    Posted 08-20-2019 19:16
    ​​Hello!

    I have recently been told that my engineering team will soon be absorbing another team of engineers from corporate. I am worried about morale and want to make sure we move forward as a whole new team, not just the old team + a few more people. I want this to be a "merger" not an "aquisition".

    I am looking for any advice or suggested readings anyone has for this type of situation!

    Thanks!

    Makenzie,

    I would argue that D&I could show several ways to integrate after a meger - after all, the idea is to make sure the new team feels included.

    While I've haven't been in one personally, here is a great article that may help:
