Integration Barometer

ICM’s Integration Barometer gauges the perception and degree of integration following a merger or acquisition. It focuses on providing feedback on the current state of integration based on a set of critical success factors that we call the “7 Bricks of Integration”©.

This assessment, based on a concise yet thorough questionnaire, will help organizations shorten the cultural integration cycle and increase buy-in into the integration process. It measures the degree of knowledge, interest, and involvement in the success of the alliance, allowing senior leaders to pinpoint those aspects that require greater communication and clarification.

ICM can enrich the quantitative data through individual interviews and/or focus groups.

Questionnaires and report formats are developed to facilitate a “next-step” process that enables teams to rapidly draw conclusions from the data and turn the data into results.

ICM assists its clients in communicating the results and contributes to the commitment made to actions undertaken. Thus, the opinion survey is a means to spur motivation, and an organizational development tool.

All ICM surveys and evaluations are web-based, anonymous, and confidential.
