Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
Center for Simplified Strategic Planning's President Robert W. Bradford, Vice President Denise A. Harrison and Senior Consultant M. Dana Baldwin will conduct a series of three one hour teleseminars, Acquisition Strategy Teleseminars covering three essential chapters.
According to Bradford, "This is a great time to make acquisitions at bargain basement prices, but be careful. Acquisitions can be a powerful tool for building the strategic resources of your business - but they are also a source of great peril. A well-managed acquisition can propel you into a strong position of leadership in your industry, while a poorly-executed acquisition can leave you in serious difficulty. The fact is; most acquisitions end badly."
