In March 2022, Navigator Consulting implemented an online training programme for a leading Romanian liquidation and restructuring specialist.
The objective of the training was to focus on practical methodological tools and methods for the diagnostic analysis and turnaround management. This is fundamentally different from a classic liquidation situation in that the company in question still has a chance to be saved.
Some of the topics included:
Formal and Informal Objectives of TAM Engagements
The structure and objectives of a Turn-Around Management (TAM) project differ widely depending on the degree of financial emergency affecting the company, and the objectives of its stakeholders. Lenders are typically concerned with debt recovery. Governments are more concerned with corporate survival and continuity of employment. Owners are concerned with survival. One of the first things a consultant needs to understand is how to structure a TAM engagement based on formal and informal objectives.
