Restructuring

“I don’t know if it will get better if it gets different. But it has to be different if it is to get better.” Georg Christoph Lichtenberg 

 

The restructuring of companies, i.e. the continuous improvement of operational and strategic performance as well as the safeguarding of liquidity, is increasingly becoming an integral part of management tasks. A reorientation of the company is of great importance not only in times of crisis.

This is a holistic approach that involves all areas of the company.

Restructuring is usually triggered by external or internal reasons:  

External reasons – for example market changes, financial crises, political conditions or a general slump in demand.

Internal reasons – for example a slump in sales, a cost explosion, quality problems or a change in competition.

Restructurings deal with operational as well as strategic, financial and structural aspects. This is not just about cutting costs, but also about how the company can continue to grow. Do you have similar problems in your company? We are happy to support you.
