TURNAROUND MANAGEMENT

We are the right partner to get the company back on track

Entrepreneurial everyday life increasingly involves financial and operational restructuring, driven by falling margins and prices, surprising slump in sales, loss of market share, changing customer needs, changed profit and loss sources, increasing organizational complexity, acute liquidity problems, etc.

If time is of the essence, a structured focus analysis is necessary, a feasible sanification or a comprehensive restructuring concept and a restructuring team that is able to implement given plans. Concentration of resources, simplicity and uniformity of action, freedom of action, ability to deal with conflict, communication, discipline, courage and assertiveness are decisive.

 

It is not necessarily difficult to define the necessary restructuring measures, but to implement them promptly and in depth, as well as the transparent and often simultaneous implementation of priority projects and the sustainable change in corporate culture, thinking and working patterns. Everything has to happen in parallel.

Task force and change management assignments require very experienced temporary managers. These special personalities must have leadership, social and methodological skills, stress resistance, assertiveness, immediately applicable work tools and freedom of implementation or a clear framework for action based on agreed goals.

 

We support our customers in coping with crisis, from analyzing the situation, identifying the causes of the crisis, defining the measures and projects, and implementing and controlling them with ongoing controlling and reporting.

 

Depending on the crisis stage, causes and liquidity situation, we recommend creating a focus analysis, a continuation concept or a comprehensive restructuring concept to solve the challenges.

Get the external know-how on time if needed

An interim manager is a flexible manager who can be used for bridging vacancies, in times of crisis, for project management or as a specialist. The interim manager absorbs management bottlenecks, brings more independence and thus gives companies a competitive advantage. An interim manager typically works under the following conditions:

  • Bridging a quantitative or qualitative bottleneck on the customer side

  • Temporary use

  • Assumption of a position in the first management level with authority to issue directives

  • Assumption of overall or partial project management

  • Executive coaching

  • Report to the board of directors or the management

For interim management, clients particularly appreciate the short-term availability of external managers, the efficient and fast staffing process and the timely implementation of upcoming projects. Interim managers are particularly in demand:

  • when making companies or parts of companies fit

  • in opening up new markets

  • in turnarounds

  • in the absence of know-how

  • during restructuring or sanification

  • to control and implement complex projects

  • when bridging vacancies.

 

In addition, clients use interim managers to obtain targeted specialist knowledge about suddenly occurring or long-lasting vacancies.
