Turn Around Management: What Your Competitors Already Know
You had a phenomenal fourth quarter. First quarter? Not such much. Second quarter comes along and you feel like you’ll never get back to where you were. When you are in a position where you are bleeding money, the future doesn’t look great for your business. But when you’re in the green and have a positive cash flow? Everything is different. You can start focusing on both the long and short-term goals that will drive profit for your business in the years to come.
With Turn Around Management, you’ll learn how to formulate and implement the turn around initiatives required to take you from bleeding red to positive green in the shortest time possible. While this is effective, it’s also very detailed to make sure you make the turn around as quickly as possible. This only happens with an in depth operational analysis.
Operational Analysis Benefits
The operational analysis is the core service in Turn Around Management. To make sure all areas are covered, its split into three phases:
- Short Term Tactical Analysis
- Mid Term Tactical and Strategic Analysis & Implementation
- Long Term Strategic Analysis & Implementation
Each phase focuses on a specific time frame in order to maximize results. The first phase is the most extensive phase as you’ll analyze recent financial and operational performance, develop a short term tactical business plan focused on aggressive management of A/R, inventory, A/P, and non-core assets, and much more.
The goal of Phase 1 is to get your business back into the green as quickly as possible. Phase 2 and 3 focus on optional mid-term and long-term actions that can be taken to correct the course if needed. These are used to maximize the chances of long-term success for your business and will be reviewed frequently to maximize effectiveness.

Business Check Up Will Help Your Company Grow
You should go to the doctor for an annual checkup. Not because you’re sick, but because it’ll help you stay on top of your health and continue to thrive. Waiting until you’re sick will leave you trying to play catch up and you’ll end up losing time at home, work, and more.
Your business? It’s no different. In corporate America, a healthy business is a lean, highly profitable business. If you wait until you’re experiencing roadblocks that are hindering growth and profitability, you’ll find yourself losing time and money trying to get back to that lean, highly-profitable business. Performing a strategic analysis of your business can help identify any potential troubles you might have coming up so that you can fix them before they put you off course.
Strategic Analysis Benefits
Completing a thorough assessment of your company is the best way to get a true overview on the current and future health of your business. In a business check up, you’ll learn if your company is properly positioned for long-term success and if you’re not, the path you need to get you there.
A thorough analysis is just that, thorough. A business check up will consist of:
- Analyze your financial data
- Tour your facilities to evaluate operational performance
- Interview owners and key management
- Gain an understanding of your market, transactions, operations, and sales trends
- Research your customers and competitors
