90 Days to Save Your World
A turnaround pulls failing companies back from the brink of disaster and – like most life-saving procedures – it’s a swift, brutal and often bloody business.
A turnaround is a one-chance-only experience. It’s do or die. And if you understand that in time, and act accordingly by following a robust, comprehensive, all-inclusive yet simple, data-driven approach to survival, your company stands a good chance of staying the course to enjoy future development and prosperity.
At the very start of a turnaround, the old or new CEO in charge needs to have a clear overview of the company’s cash position, global footprint, FTE structure, departments, products and product market propositions, customers, employees, competitors and control systems as well as the IT landscape. And in a turnaround situation, this information needs to come at lightning speed. Only then can any decisions be made that give the company a fighting chance.
With Covid-19 swinging the scythe over an unprecedented number of businesses right now, there has never been a more pressing time for a step-by-step plan to save them from becoming another statistic of the pandemic. A turnaround isn’t rocket science, it’s a brutally honest evaluation of a business so that the right analysis can be made for data-driven decisions and successful implementation.
That’s the work we are in. We support businesses to deliver a 90-day turnaround to save your world.

Bearing the full weight of responsibility for a company’s success or failure is a tough job. Dealing with external challenges beyond one’s control while armed with the highest level of authority in which there can only be unhappy consequences, is a lot to deal with.
