Although Turnaround looks on the surface like it is all about spreadsheets and business plans, it is more than anything about people; people with special qualities who are capable not only of surviving but thriving in what are often difficult and distressing situations.
The difference with Turnaround Group is a unique set of values and commitments:
Wealth creation and added value
Whether we are working for business owners or on behalf of the public sector, our role is to protect and build the value of organisations. We work with underperforming organisations that are likely to fail or continue to underperform without some intervention. We rebuild organisations, taking them from low value to high value, restoring stakeholder confidence. By making organisations better than their competitors we create competitive advantage and a platform for future growth and profits.
Independence and objectivity
We expect to earn the right to an opinion by gathering the evidence that makes clear the path to take. We have the strength of character not to be blown off course by internal or external forces.
Trust and integrity
In distress situations, time is often against you and the fate of organisations can rest on a few big decisions. In those critical moments, it is vital that you have complete trust in the people alongside you.
Professionalism and quality
With large sums of money and people’s futures at stake, reaching the right conclusions is paramount. We have confidence in what we do because it is based on a solid foundation of long term professional development and training, experience and commitment to quality. Our creative turnaround strategies are developed by talented individuals with decades of proven blue chip business experience. As well as helping our clients develop good governance of their own organisations, we ensure good governance of turnaround programmes.
Commitment to action
We are battle hardened. We stay calm under pressure, have the single minded determination to drive through difficult changes and strong leadership skills to win hearts and minds. We are doers. Once we have worked out the right course of action, we don’t sit around waiting for something to happen. We get on with the job because, as experienced turnaround business people, we know it is execution of the plan that delivers the results.
We enjoy what we do and who we do it with. It is important to maintain a sense of perspective even in the most difficult circumstances. This enjoyment makes all the difference, and can help us to make the impossible possible.
Building an enduring legacy is at the core of our approach. We leave our clients with a bank of enhanced business critical skills; improved systems and procedures; and a strengthened leadership team – so that they can grow strongly and weather future storms.
