About This Course:
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) happen often in business, and HR will play a significant role in the process, regardless of which end of the transaction your organization is on.

While much of the M&A process focuses on corporate assets, brand equity, and intellectual property, the value of a workforce and the people involved play an increasingly larger role.
