Machiavelli wrote that there are three different ways to deal with a republic that has been living by its own laws: allow it to continue undisturbed, establish a strong presence there, or ruin it. In this program, business leaders discuss strategies for successfully managing a newly acquired company, while acknowledging the difficulty of a smooth transition. With Professor Lars Håkanson (Copenhagen Business School), who advises balancing autonomy with cooperation, and Hans Engell, Jokke, Bengt Baron, and John Dunn.
