Regrettably, not only have most of these companies failed to achieve these laudable objectives, but also some of them had disappeared from business of economic environment after their merges and acquisitions.
Several reasons have been adduced for the abysmal performance of some of these companies. Prominent among these had been the inability by those at the helm of affairs i.e. management to recognize the impact/role of strategic management and apply same to the operations of their companies.
