    Business Turnaround And Strategic Transformation – Concepts And Cases

    Wide and sweeping changes are shaping the business landscape today, and threatening to erode the competitive advantages of companies. It is not uncommon to see marquee firms of yesteryears become casualty of current environmental shocks. Even the surviving companies do so after losing immense value of stakeholders. Only well designed and meticulously implemented turnaround strategies can revive companies facing such shock and bestow their past glory. This unique programme takes the participants through the science behind turning around businesses and transforming strategies

    The objectives of the programme are: (a) to provide the participants with a comprehensive perspective on business turnaround and strategic transformation, (b) equip them with tools required to handle such processes effectively, and (c) develop the skill required to apply the tools in a contextually relevant and effective manner. The content not only covers the “dos” and “don’ts”, but takes a deep dive into the conceptual depth to explain the “why?”, so that the participants can apply the tool in a contextually relevant manner. High emphasis on case analysis helps the participants develop a deep insight and the skill of applying the tools in real life context.
