Can your Organisation benefit from Turnaround?

  1. Stressed not fatal – The organisation is experiencing a period of under performance due to a sharp shock or steady decline.
  2. Decline and fall – Failure to reverse decline will do irreparable damage to the organisation.
  3. A viable future – If the organisation can overcome its immediate troubles, it has a good chance of succeeding in the medium to long term.
