Aetna To Buy Humana?

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Will Aetna buy Humana next week? If so, how will the two corporate philosophies morph into one? Aetna is viewed by many as a Round Peg fits only a round hole and a square peg fits only a square hole  type of company. Humana, on the other, has a different corporate philosophy and allows Regional Managers to manage their own territories with little or no home office interference. At Humana innovation is rewarded. At Aetna, direction flows from the top down.
