Yes, it's my intention to make a stable employment choice and climb up the ladder. Then I ask is it difficult to reach management level. No I started as a secretary. Makes me wonder the competency of all other positions.
Wow, I wonder if it's this easy to get job titles, how efficient is the management team?
I listed the obvious functional areas. Questioner appears to be looking for a much longer answer addressing particular interegation challenges and areas. My answer was obviously too short and general. A succesful candidate need to be able to list off a very detailed plan and appoaches to various functional areas. This was hard for me since I am not a merger integration expert in all areas, even though I have done merger integration work.
I haven't had my interview yet, still at the phone stage. But, my answer would be a little different. I would ask what their strategy was. The announcement is really the last step. If they don't have a strategy, point person within both organizations, software, hr compatibilities you have issues. The very first thing necessary is to understand the culture, needs, plan and goals of the merger / alliance. This obviously leads to a very lengthy answer but to net it out, a fast look at articles about strategic alliances development would help alot.
This is too broad of a question and requires a follow up question. What are we integrating? Processes? Business entities? Infrastructure? People? All of the above? In general, people/process/technology (PPT) needs to be integrated when merging two business entities, or you can say that PPT always need to be considered when integrating systems or business processes.
I didn't have an incident that you would call a mistake. However, I did have a work habit that needed revision. Often, I would take on too many tasks at one time rather than delegate them to others. This caused others to feel that I didn't have faith in their ability to perform the tasks.
I don't have a work. But for me if i had a mistake of course i apologize to the manager,and ill make sure next time i will not do it again for any mistake i had.
I was a leader there for many years.....it doesn't matter what example you use......as long as it is work related this is what they want to hear..(in whatever personal story you have)... You can demonstrate accountability by owning up to your mistakes......everybody makes them so it's important you can recognize and learn from them. Also that once you have owned up to it what you have done t fix it and learn from it so it doesn't continue.
No financial information was given and very little information given about either company yet the session leader expected an exact answer.
It all depends on whether there are aspects / pieces of that company that fit with the core competencies of the purchasing company. Starbucks buying Exxon gas stations would be a good fit since they can sell their products in the convenience stores associated within each Exxon gas station. However, Starbucks purchasing an oil and gas drilling company probably wouldn't make much sense. It's all about whether synergies can be created between the purchaser and purchasee.
If you had 5 red balls that contained 4 red balls and those red balls contained the original 5 red balls, then how many sets of sets of balls would I take to have a double set of red balls of varying sizes inside each next largest red ball?
I admitted I prefer fiction, but have recently been reading a book called Gemba Kaizen. Six Sigma and the various related methodologies are really important in larger organizations, and reading up on them will help you understand the larger picture within the organization. You may not see the effects in the position you accept, but you will eventually.
