Team Building Challenges and Opportunities After a Public Agency Merger
by Severson, Andrea A., M.S., Pepperdine University, 2020, 57; 28029022
Abstract (Summary)

This study used a mixed-method design to gather data about team building after a public agency merger. This study found that teamwork, role clarity, and clear decision processes were the most important factors impacting goal accomplishment post-merger. Prioritizing team building before, during, and after a public agency merger can address some of the most common challenges presented by a merger or acquisition.
