Cultural Integration


 We know that integrating two companies means integrating two living breathing organisms.  Synergies and success are realized through people and people rely on their culture in interaction and behavior.  

askme Partners has a proven methodology on how to have cultural integration interwoven throughout all workstreams.

Sales Integration


Customers are your reason for being

  during an integration.   

Successfully managing your sales integration 

can determine if your deal achieves its value 

and growth targets.

askme Partners applies a proven fact-based, customer-focused sales integration synergy approach to  align your teams and drive growth.

Lean / Six-Sigma Value Creation


 Post Merger Integrations bring 

a lot of change and uncertainty.   

The rewards for getting things right can be significant, but the risk of getting things wrong can be detrimental to your business.  

At askme Partners, we use a Lean/ Six-Sigma approach for identifying, prioritizing, and applying successful change to help you get it right the first time and realize your business case.
