Type/nr R25/09
Skrevet av Aniela Szumilas and Inger Stensaker

This report describes the post-merger integration process between Statoil and Hydro oil & gas. While the two organizations were formally merged in October 2007, the work of planning the integration began even earlier and has proceeded well into 2009. Issues pertaining to how to organize a large-scale change process, designing and manning a new and integrated organization, the role of middle management during change and how the integration has influenced one of the international subsidiaries are included. The report is written up in a teaching case format, purposefully leaving out theoretical analyses, and with questions for discussion woven into the text.
