ST:Business Turnaround Strategies


This course will begin by determining when and why a "turnaround or workout" is necessary for an organization. An assessment of warning signs both qualitative and quantitative will be undertaken. We will look at alternative strategies employed successfully in manufacturing and service industries ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 sized firms that have led to a more vital positioning. Leadership characteristics necessary for turnaround strategy employment will be studied. Students will subsequently develop a "business turnaround plan" within a project format.
