Identifying the Warning Signs

Companies experiencing declining performance typically exhibit one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Decreasing Market Share: A subtle erosion of competitive position, even if overshadowed by apparent sales increases due to market growth or inflation.
  • Sales Decline: Observable reduction in sales figures.
  • Profitability Downturn: Declining profit margins.
  • Debt Management Challenges: Struggles in managing debt obligations.
  • Lack of Reinvestment: Inadequate reinvestment in the business.
  • Absence of Clear Business Strategy: Lack of a cohesive and effective business strategy.

Strategic Business Analysis: Mapping the Path to Revitalization

Companies must conduct a thorough business analysis to address these challenges, scrutinizing internal and external factors. This comprehensive evaluation involves:


Internal Analysis: Assessing strengths and weaknesses related to competencies, resources, and competitive advantages.


External Analysis: Evaluating macroenvironmental factors influencing the organization.


Holistic Turnaround Strategies

A holistic approach requires combining internal and external analyses to comprehensively understand the organization’s issues. This insight forms the basis for developing turnaround strategies that mitigate threats, address weaknesses, and capitalize on identified strengths and advantages.
