Came across this question:
How is it possible that corporate giants AT&T and Time Warner reach an agreement on the terms of a merger in only two months while many small business owners languish over deals for six months, nine months, or even years?

My answer is simple:
Corporate giants are more organized, prepared and they engage in effective communication to avoid wasting time.

What do you think?

I think @VirtualGlobalPhone nailed it in mentioning emotion. Small business owners are often emotional about their businesses and hem and haw over whether they even want to sell. They are often concerned with how the acquiring company will treat their "baby" and other emotion-based concerns. Large corporations have none of that. It's simply a financial transaction.
