Sample text

Therefore it is worthwhile to familiarize the reader with the findings of a few researchers of social identity theory who have tried to explain the origins of prejudice and discrimination. Until recently inter-group prejudices and the related concepts of stereotyping and discrimination were only considered as attitudinal constructs without relation to emotions. Stereotypes of an outgroup are widely defined as the perceiver’s beliefs about the group’s attributes (for example, an outgroup can be seen as dirty, musical or lazy).

As long as people feel this urge to compare their social group with outgroups, to be seen as distinctive from others and to favour their own ingroup by creating prejudices towards or by discriminating outgroups (Johnston and Hewstone, 1990), it is not surprising that the ‘us versus them syndrome’ (Morosini, 1998) in postmerger organizations as well as conflicts between the two ‘camps’ are difficult to overcome. 2 POST-MERGER INTEGRATION FROM A SOCIAL IDENTITY PERSPECTIVE Against the background of social identity theory, identity construction and group interaction in M&As have to be reconsidered.

The authors point out that cultural fit and cultural compatibility are different things: ‘cultural fit’ usually defines a similarity between cultures, while ‘compatibility’ in the M&A context does not necessarily mean having a similar organizational culture.
