Most businesses, especially commercial enterprises and SMEs exist in a state of constant change. Companies are often affected by:
Even the most stable and solid of businesses go through periods of change where additional support and expertise may be required.

If one of our specialists determines that your organisation is still viable, our next-step strategies normally proceed one of four ways.
Here, a wide range of short-term actions will be recommended to; reduce financial losses, stabilise the company and to battle against the problem that is the source of the poor performance. This can be achieved through; selling assets, abandoning difficult markets, halting unprofitable production lines, downsizing or outsourcing. This strategy will be efficiency orientated and refocus on core business.
This strategy attempts to generate revenue with new innovations and change in product/service portfolio and market position. This can include; the development of new products, entering new markets, exploring alternative sources of revenue, modifying the image or brand of the company or altering company objectives.
Replacement is where top managers are substituted. This is used when there is a belief that new managers will bring strategic change through different experiences and understanding. This strategy is bold but is utilised where there appears to be a complete failure of the current incumbent/s to recognise that vast change is required in order to prevent the business from failing.
This strategy concentrates on long-term actions which can improve managerial performance. All structures are analysed and may end with the closure of some divisions, increased market development or expansion into new areas. Equally innovative core competencies are implemented which culminate in increased knowledge and stabilisation of the company.
You may wish to bring one of our Specialists in to undertake a 'complete project' or you could 'mix and match' and utilise a Specialist to complete a specific task.

Statistics show that 9 out of 10 businesses fail in their first ten years and of the 10% that survive, 9 out of 10 will fail in the following ten years.
Why businesses fail is about as worthwhile as asking "how long is a piece of string?". There are many reasons why businesses can fail. From extremely poor management (Internal factors) to a full-blown recession (External factors).
Whatever may be the case, it is always a very challenging, upsetting and extremely worrying period, particularly when business owners have invested a high level of personal capital.
There are some warning signs that business owners should be on the lookout for. If you can recognise many of the signs in this document then it is likely that your business is under pressure, at risk, or insolvent.
Not all businesses are recoverable, and some will inevitably slide into terminal decline. If this is the case, you can be assured our specialists have exhausted all options and solutions.
