Abstract

This study explored change management in a gambling organisation that has recently gone through an acquisition. The acquired company had gone through a failed merger so a cultural integration strategy was put in place which was led bottom up with employee involvement from the very beginning. A case study approach was taken using qualitative questionnaires across five of the major office locations using the cultural web change model as an assessment tool to evaluate the current temperature of the culture. Results of the study indicated that the cultural web gave a good overview of the current culture of the organisation and clear recommendations could be given as a result of the model.
