Cultural Diagnostics

Culture is often cited as being a leading cause of deal failure. Given cultural integration is an underlying force in deal success, it is critical to intentionally and systematically assess the culture of the target organization, identify potential cultural differences that may erode the value of the deal, and develop clear action plans for integrating and addressing cultural differences.

Aon’s Culture diagnostics blend inputs from both data and in-person observations to build an overall cultural assessment.
