Verizon sought to acquire Alltel, by joining forces however; Verizon has agreed to pay $5.9 billion in addition to assuming an insurmountable debt of about $22.2 billion. The upward side to the acquisition is the wide array of consumers Verizon will acquire as a result, thus creating one of the world's largest and most successful wireless carriers in the country. The acquisition is thought of (by Verizon executives) as a means to generate substantial revenue, increased ROI (Return-On-Investment), expand globally, and acquire new consumers while retaining current consumers. The acquisition could not have come at a more crucial time for Alltel, seeing as though the company was dealing with financial troubles as a result of a buy out from TPG Capital and GS Capital Partners (subdivisions of Goldman Sachs). Consequently, the company was having trouble with selling the debt they accumulated (as a result of the buyout aforementioned) in order to finance the acquisition. Alltel, sought assistance from various banks and were unsuccessful in their efforts, nevertheless, Verizon intercepted Alltel's search for financing and decided to pay $5.9 billion and acquire the remaining debt balance. Although, the acquisition, at first glance appeared to be more of a liability than an asset, the acquisition turned out to be a win/win for all parties involved. Alltel was able to reposition themselves in the marketplace by glomming onto a telecommunications giant in the wireless industry. Their efforts to combine forces and exchange resources allowed Verizon to strengthen their marketability and improve their status within their wireless industry.

Whether an individual is new to the world of leadership or an experienced leader, it is a fair assessment to assume that managers old and new must work towards perfecting and honing their skills through a management training program. In today's corporate world where the competition is razor sharp and an individual's ability to succeed in corporate America is predicated upon a managers performance, measure of productivity, competency and level of leadership skills. As changes occur, management repositions themselves in the marketplace in order to meet consumer demands, gradually adjusting to a rapidly changing industry. Change is defined as pervasive influence, where all aspects are subject to continual change of one form or another. Piderit, S.K. (2005) argues that, change is an inescapable part of both social and organizational life. The concept of organizational change is in regard to organizational-wide change, as opposed to smaller changes such as adding a new person, modifying a program, and the like. Examples of organization-wide change might include a change in mission, restructuring operations (e.g. restructuring of self-managed teams, layoffs, etc.), new technologies, mergers, major collaborations, and rightsizing.
