English term or phrase: Integration Extent Versus Deal Rationale
Integration Extent Versus Deal Rationale

Investment thesis cluster around at least one of three aims: active investing, growing scope, or growing economies of scale. These three types of investment thesis form a spectrum, with active investing on one end and growing scale on the other. As on moves along the spectrum, the extent of an acquirer's integration effort needs to increase....

... Minimal integration - fix or improve existing culture

Selective integration reffers to keping different cultures; harmonize where integrating

Comprehensive integration - adopt dominant culture or combine to gain best of both
...


Can someone simplify this title... how do I take the word "versus"?

The deal rationale - cultural changes??? is what determines the extent of the acquirer's integration effort...?

match your culture integration approach with your merger purpose
Explanation:
IMO, "versus" here should be read "matching", i.e. choice of integration extent must be matched well with the deal rationale.

We have three deal rationales:
= active investing --> acquire new business (i.e. buy a business different than the one you've already had, e.g. a telco buys a retail)
= growing scope --> acquire vertical business (e.g. an oil sxproducer buy a petrol station chain)
= growing economies of scale --> acquire same business and rationalize later in search of efficiency

and three integration extent: minimal, selective, and comprehensive.

Sample of matching: comprehensive integration seems to be a must for the third deal (growing economies of scale). That's in my IMHO.

Re. on title simplification, I propose this:
