The Process

1. Preliminary Assessment

Prior to any planning or implementation, the turnaround viability of the company is assessed. This identifies immediate issues that require urgent intervention and thorough crisis management procedures.

2. Crisis Management

If the company is already in crisis ‒ due to liquidation, labour action, termination of crucial contracts or possible closure by regulatory bodies ‒ immediate action is taken to avert closure of the business or possible job losses, until the Business Turnaround and Recovery process can take effect.

3. Establishment of Future Forums

A Future Forum is a committee comprised of management, employees and union representatives. It creates a structured, collaborative environment that allows for open discussion between all parties.

4. Capacity Building

Building capacity ensures all members of the Future Forum are empowered to contribute meaningfully, with a clear understanding of business operations and what will make the company sustainable and profitable. ‘Productivity Champions’ are identified and trained to lead by example.

5. In-Depth Assessment

During this phase, the organisation and its appointed consultants evaluate the root causes of the company’s problems, and formulate appropriate turnaround or redeployment strategies.

6. Strategy Implementation

Once roles are assigned, agreed strategies are implemented.

7. Productivity Sustainability: Keeping on Track

To ensure improvements are monitored and maintained, in-house ‘Productivity Champions’ are appointed. Their purpose is to drive productivity and quality aspects of production/service delivery.
