Abstract

Ted Colby, the newly appointed director of the Home Technologies, Inc.s (HTI) learning center, is crafting a plan for the integration of the two learning centers, which come with different operating philosophies, assets, and practices. Colbys goal is to create a single department suitable for the new entity, HTI. In the (A) case, students are challenged to critique Colbys early integration concerns and decisions. In the (B) case, students have the opportunity to evaluate the integration progress and evolving situation about a year after the (A) case. Colby has been able to execute some of his changes for positive results, but other plans have been stalled or pushed back, and uncertainty over the future of HTIs corporate financial performance is proving problematic.

Keywords: post merger integration
