Turning a business around bookTurning a Business Around: How to Spot the Warning Signs and Ensure a Business Stays Healthy

by Mark Blayney

Product Description

There is lots of advice around for starting a business, but less for when it is established but un-profitable, or gets into difficulties. This is a guide to help you when the going gets tough. It acts as a smoke detector – to help spot the early warning signs of approaching difficulty, and as a fire extinguisher – for immediate use in a crisis. It will help you to turn a business around by explaining: why businesses fail, how to spot the warning signs, key ways to stabilise your finances, how to devise a realistic recovery plan, and how to manage that plan into effective action.

by Michael Fullan (Author)

Review
“In Turnaround Leadership Michael Fullan goes beyond a critique of contemporary practice to offer specific, comprehensive strategies to create schools that become continuously more effective by building the capacity and the confidence of the educators within them. This is a must read for anyone serious about meaningful school improvement.”
—Richard Dufour, educational author and consultant”Michael Fullan moves with authority to identify the kind of leadership needed to turn around our schools. His turnaround solutions are not the product of armchair contemplation, but have emerged out of the sweat and tears of actual systemic reform efforts.”
—Peter Hill, secretary general of the Hong Kong examinations and Assessment Authority

“Michael Fullan’s work on leadership is powerful not just because it is evidence-based but because it is actionable?”
—Sir Michael Barber, McKinsey and Company, London, England

“Fullan goes far beyond the rhetoric of moral purpose to lay out in stark terms what he rightly calls the ‘real reform agenda.’”
—David Hopkins, HSBC chair of international leadership, Institute of Education, University of London
