Dorset Partners: Revitalizing Troubled Businesses Globally - brochure

We Wrote the Book

When corporations are in deep distress, leaders need to act quickly and decisively. Unfortunately, business schools and popular business literature are almost completely devoid of the knowledge executives need to navigate the difficulty and emerge on the other side with a strengthened business. The lack of information on the topic is so extreme that many CEOs and high level managers don’t realize how undereducated they are on turnaround practices until it’s too late. In Corporate Turnaround Artistry: Fix Any Business in 100 Days, Jeff Sands provides a much needed guide to understanding and overcoming financial ruin in small to medium sized enterprises.

This is the first book to focus exclusively on the theory and practice of financial restructuring for failing corporations, drawing on multiple examples and decades of experience. Author Jeff Sands is a seasoned Turnaround Artist who has focused his career on saving businesses in trouble. Inside this book, Sands reveals the step-by-step guidelines they follow to fix even the murkiest and most complex business struggles. From day one of the crisis through a successful turnaround plan and building long-term value, this book shows how to make the most of the worst situations.

Firms in crises need strong leaders who can weather the stresses of failure, negotiate firmly with banks, identify the best legal course of action, and restructure debt, all in a matter of a few days, and at a moment’s notice. Leaders whose firms are currently in crisis may want to keep Corporate Turnaround Artistry by their bedside tables. Those who have had the good fortune to avoid disaster so far would also do well to read this book.
