Tim has authored numerous articles for publications including: Mergers & Acquisitions, Strategy & Leadership, Journal of Business Strategy, The Handbook of Business Strategy, World Journal of Entrepreneurship, Journal of Business and Entrepreneurship, and Corporate Governance. Tim’s latest book is Winning at the Acquisition Game.
Winning at the Acquisition Game presents the best materials, insights, tools, and templates which comprise the comprehensive, cross-disiplinary Mergers and Acquisitions course taught in the MBA and Executive MBA programs at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. Each chapter connects traditionally distinct “siloed” functional expertise and provides readers with practical knowledge and tools to help them understand the entire M&A process; from pre-deal strategy and due diligence, through transaction valuation, negotiations, and consummation, to post-deal implementation, workforce motivation, innovation for revenue growth, and results measurement and reporting. Case examples illustrate how each stage of the process has been implemented by companies across various industries, while discussion questions and self-assessments enable readers to determine their organization’s current level of M&A capability.
Through an actionable, end-to-end process model this book shows both practitioners and students of M&A how to successfully mobilize and integrate organizational capability and avoid management missteps to gain a unique advantage and truly “win” at the acquisition game.
