It happened to me this year when a company seeking a detailed one-year roadmap for the IT merger and migration hit a roadblock: The organization it was acquiring couldn't share details of its IT infrastructure until the merger was formally approved. When access to technical information is limited, it puts a great deal of pressure on M&A project teams, as there is little time to plan for all technical projects and merger activities.
