Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have been highly sought after by numerous organizations, as a mechanism to expand their business operations, gain competitive advantage over their market contestants and ultimately improve their overall value creation by enhancing the financial performance. However, the effectiveness of merger and acquisition in the field of organisational change has been a much debatable topic amongst the academia and the industry practitioners for decades. Despite various real-life cases had displayed that the failure is high, the trend to adopt the merger and acquisition never seems to cease for various reasons. From these failures, it has been found and learnt that the most common root that builds up the foundation for failures comes from handling the change management and process. This research case study henceforth examines how Telford Group of Company change process works in practice and reacts within the context of theoretical business-level strategy framework, integrating the real-life situation presented in the case of intense competition and pricing pressure in the industry. The research study will mainly consist of a comprehensive study on the organisational change management through Merger & Acquisition, supported with the evaluation of the impacts of M&A, identification of leadership style required, examination of the linkage of strategies and value creation and finally a development of the strategic organizational change model for the Telford Group of Companies. The outcome of the case study research has achieved its aims to establish new theoretical evidence by examining how the three key parameters, i.e., strategy, leadership and value are interlinked in scholarship and actual practice, assisting the Telford Group of Companies and any organisations of similar characteristics, to work out a realistic and practical model which can be applied and adopted with a timeless limit. Finally, the proposal of “Infinity Change Model” is presented as the universal business model, which does not limit its adoption by Telford, but also for the benefits of the public and academia at large.
