Managing the integration process in a merger. Case: Cloetta Fazer (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Mergers have been increasing during the latter part of the 1990s. In the Nordic region many previously national companies have joined their forces to create a new Nordic company. This will lead to many challenges when the companies are integrated.

Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the integration phase. Our goal is to study the integration of Cloetta Fazer and learn how the company can handle the two types of integration.

Procedure: To be able to prove our assumptions, that were made on the basis of literature, we have collected empirical material by interviewing eight managers at Cloetta Fazer.

Summary: We have identified a conflict between structural and cultural integration that occur because one type of integration may proceed faster than the other. That is why our statement is that the two types of integration are dependent on each other.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Fusioner har ökat under senare delen av 1990-talet. I Norden har många tidigare nationella företag gått samman för att bilda ett nytt nordiskt företag. Detta leder till utmaningar när företagen skall integreras.

Syfte: Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka integrationsprocessen. Vårt mål är att studera integrationen av Cloetta Fazer och lära hur ett företag kan hantera de två olika typerna av integration.

Genomförande: För att kunna bevisa våra frågeställningar, som gjordes på basen av litteratur, har vi samlat in empiriskt material genom att intervjua åtta stycken chefer på Cloetta Fazer.

Sammandrag: Vi har identifierat en konflikt mellan strukturell och kulturell integration som beror på att den ena typen fortgår snabbare än den andra. Därmed är vår slutsats att dessa två typer av integration är beroende av varandra.
