What is Synergy?
Synergy is a concept that says, "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts". It is combining the effort and performance of two companies to accomplish more than the the combination of what each company could accomplish individually. The term is often used in the context of mergers and acquisitions where two companies combine their value and performance to achieve greater financial benefit.
