Cross-border M&A has become one of the leading approaches for ﬁrms to
gain access to global markets. Yet there has been little progress in the
research literature exploring the role that culture may play in the success
of these ventures. Poor culture-ﬁt has often been cited as one reason why
M&A has not produced the outcomes organizations hoped for (Cartwright & Schoenberg, 2006). Cross-border M&A has the added challenges of having to deal with both national and organizational culture
differences. In this chapter we review the literature on cultural integration
in cross-border M&A and provide a framework designed to help manage
the integration process throughout the M&A lifecycle. This framework
presents culture assessment and integration as a crucial component to
reducing poor culture-ﬁt as a barrier to M&A success.
