Steering Committee

Steering Committee's Role and Responsibilities

A Steering Committee's role is to provide guidance and oversight to the integration effort, approve plans, allocate the necessary resources to the integration, review progress, and resolve cross-functional disputes whenever a major impasse is reached at lower levels. Members of the Committee also pick strategic points throughout the integration to kick off meetings and demonstrate their support.

The M&A Integration Steering Committee is comprised of C-level executives from both the acquiring and acquired organizations.

This section of the web site covers many of the decisions that a Steering Committee should make early in the integration process. The initial direction provided by the Steering Committee aligns teams on objectives before detailed planning begins.
