BUSINESS TURNAROUND

Dr Roger Stewart, businessman and historian

All businesses will come to an end, some precipitously, some gradually. This is an introductory course on turning around an established business that is on a trajectory of decline. The goal of intervention is to survive, revive and then thrive. Topics to be covered include the most common causes of decline and their diagnosis; the lead and lag indicators of an impending crisis; the duties and role of the board (or owners of an SME); dealing with providers of capital, creditors and employees; the value of outside assistance and when to invoke formal business rescue under the Companies Act. Finally, it provides a series of generic steps that can be followed and tools that can be applied in order to escape a trajectory of decline, to prevent commercial insolvency and avoid an irreversible crisis.
