Mergers & Acquisitions are decisions that demand huge investments in terms of both physical and human resources. Consequently, one needs to collect every 'seemingly important' speck of the 'firm capturing' story and conclude accordingly as to whether the activities were successfully implemented or not.
In the absence of an effective monitoring tool, things can get ugly in no time and even a firm running well earlier can find itself in troubled waters. In other words, these delicate and sensitive issues should be tackled in a quantitative manner. One such methodology that can make this possible is BSC i.e. Balanced Scorecard.
The fruitfulness of its utility is a function of the 'relevance' the metrics listed on it hold. This suggests that the user has to be cautious and well-prepared when it comes to selection of indicators. By spotting the areas, which matter in the process it is possible to come up with a useful set of indicators.

The performance indicators include: crisis management in mergers and acquisitions, financial perspective, number of independent sources of funds, % share exchanged, operational savings, tax considerations, human resources issues, cross cultural training, clearly defined roles, operational and technical training sessions, % job loss, operations perspective, product continuation, product restructuring, % increase in market share, integrated activities, partner compatibility, goals compatibility, proposed time duration for merger or acquisition, number of compliance required, pay-back period .
