Abstract

The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Barclays Bank PLC were in advanced negotiations regarding the potential merger of their respective retail, corporate and offshore banking operations in the Caribbean. Currently there are four systems in operation in the region. All are carry-overs from the pre-merger operation of the bank. Each of the systems has different pros and cons consisting of degree of fit with the organization strategy, likely impact on organizational culture, and functionality. As part of the effort to standardize practices across the organization, a choice for one standard operating system must be made. This case may be taught on a stand alone basis or in combination with any of four additional cases that deal with various functional issues regarding the actual merger and integration. The four additional cases are: (1) CIBC-Barclays: Should Their Caribbean Operations be Merged? ''9B04M067''; (2) Harmonization of Compensation and Benefits for FirstCaribbean Bank ''9B04C053''; (3) ''CIBC-Barclays: Accounting for Their Merger ''9B04B022''; and (4) Note on Banking in the Caribbean ''9B05M015''. There is a Simplified Chinese version available ''9B04EC32''.
