Business turnaround consultants help you with crisis management and cash flow challenges. Turn to a professional for turnaround management.
A company turnaround consultant corrects business losses, bad debt structures, cash shortfalls, and other factors that have put the business into its cash crisis.
Crisis management is different from normal business management – are you experienced in turnarounds? A turnaround consultant will prioritize your cash flow management, work with your lenders, and do what is needed to get your business back on track - and poised for new growth.
The early stages of business distress often do not feel like a crisis, but ignoring the symptoms always make the problems compound. Your company may benefit from turnaround consulting services if:
If your company fits one of these bullets, contact a business turnaround specialist immediately.
Engaging a turnaround specialist early opens up more options to you and can ultimately cost less in the form of lower interest rates, egregious lender fees, and aggressive actions by creditors, suppliers, and other parties.
There is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to restructuring, so a turnaround consultant should customize their approach to your situation. Turnaround management often involves:
Turnaround consulting typically addresses business problems from multiple viewpoints: Financing, Operations, Strategy, Marketing, and Pricing, to name a few. It is a comprehensive review of what went wrong, what can go wrong, and what risk management strategies can be put into place to grow the company and prevent recurrence of financial distress.
Business turnaround management also performs a critical assessment of the company’s business plan, long-term financing arrangements, and management team, providing candid advice about changes needed to ensure success. As you phase out of crisis management, a turnaround consultant may recommend long-term financial management services, such as forecasting, budgeting, or variance analysis.
Lenders, suppliers, and other stakeholders will be relieved that you have engaged a turnaround consultant. Lenders know the signs of a distressed business but often are not in a position to take a deep dive or provide advice.
Telling them that you have decided to engage a qualified turnaround management service is a good step toward rebuilding the lender relationship and moving past the current hurdles.

Turnaround restructuring should be a last resort, typically reserved for companies who waited too long to engage a consulting service for performance improvement.
The best business owners in history have faced downturns – those who used their professional resources to face the distress came out stronger. Those who faced the crisis alone usually failed.
