Organizational development serves as a means of virtually overhauling how a company operates in terms of improving effectiveness over all facets of business operations and at all levels in the business. The first step keeping organizational development principles in mind is setting goals. The common goals for organizational development is increased performance and productivity, enhanced employee morale and profitability. One of the first steps in producing a goal that could promote synergy is assessing Company A's paid 3-month sick leave. This kind of behavior will not bode well with Company B, especially since Company will own roughly 85% of Company B. The aim then becomes to lessen the amount of paid sick leave offered to 1.5 months or 6 weeks.

But since both companies are sales and service driven, areas for improvement would fall under communication skills, technical proficiency development, creativity, and problem solving.

Company A is a third generational family business. This means several family members exist in key positions in the company. There is also a positive environment cultivated by the family-like principles applied to the management of the company. Company B. is the opposite and hires staff based on an algorithm with timed workloads. For the two companies to synergize, there must be a middle road in terms of changes applied to Company A.
