The role of a Turnaround Manager is to save companies from a seriously unprofitable situation. This may follow a merger, take-over, restructure or as a result of adverse market conditions or mismanagement. A first class Turnaround Manager is more than a short-term 'company doctor'; he or she redefines the company's business mission and restructures it for long-term survival. This book shows how to do this. It includes practical advice from experienced Turnaround Managers, real-life examples of best practice and an objective guide to the principles involved in this increasingly important role.
