    Corporate entrepreneurship can play a central role in the integration of mergers and acquisitions. This paper describes a study spanning seven years for six mergers and acquisitions that involved UK, US and Swedish acquisitions of East German firms. The authors used the respective strengths of corporate entrepreneurship to predict the likely success or failure of each M&A, with very accurate results when they revisited the companies in 2001. The authors draw further lessons from the study by linking corporate entrepreneurship to the learning organisation and providing practical lessons for managers.
