Presidential transition: Translating lessons from mergers and acquisitions

The scale of a presidential transition is staggering. More than 4,000 political appointees will resign as of January 20, 2017. It’s a large-scale, critical, yet infrequently occurring event, so we turned to the commercial world for new insights on managing a presidential transition. CEO transitions in the private sector occur much more often than every four or eight years.

We interviewed experts who advise, facilitate, and manage M&A transactions and post-merger integration as well as with those who have advised or experienced presidential and other government transitions. We discovered some striking similarities. Civil servants, transition team participants, and incoming political appointees may benefit from the translation of important lessons from the hundreds of M&A transactions that have occurred.
