Behavioral Organization: Merger–Acquisition Integration (Theoretical Approach and Applied) for Jordan Companies

Jihad. Alfarajat, Mohammad. M. Alalaya


This study as other previous studies finds that theory puts has a higher consequence as outcome arising from pre-existing structural characteristic. Also there is clear evidence that complexity is the most predominate, enhance, this study aims to examine the performance of merger –acquisition of organization as it involves the pre-established structural specific characteristic, as team behavior, infrastructure support, organization complexity, enhance the effect task structure, and motivation, also the willingness to share information and cultural unification. Also we have used (Vasconellos and Kish) model to support our results of merger-acquisition integration through implies the model to our two companies, the results support our opinion that M/A integration can improve and make progress and successful result to the companies which interred to M/A integration process.

The extent to which the organizational provides an infrastructure of firms support is also quite at adequate levels and expected to have a positive correlation with the post-merger outcomes for the Jordanian companies. Individuals- willingness to have the information is in the lowest level of association with the performance and integration of the organization.Counterintuitively, the analyzed leading to a cohesive of the behavioral theory of the post-merger, and has a paves away of the scholar to study and applied the integration dynamics and using mathematical models which can be tailored as specific circumstances.
