Facing sharp drops in revenue… what questions should you be considering?

–         Which functions should your company divest?

–         Which will fail?

–         Which should you save?

–         Which can thrive?

–         Which of your key suppliers will fail, and when?

–         How does your cost base compare with the best in the industry?

–         Which of your suppliers can you lever the greatest savings from?

–         How should you restructure to better serve your customers?

–         Which of your competitors can you take sales from?

What are you waiting for? 

When should you act?

What action should you take?

Do you have the data on which to base the key decisions to resource implement the right changes?


In the current environment you must be able to answer all the above questions and confidently.


Are Traditional Consulting or Interim Management interventions enough?

Businesses that continue doing what they have done, before the credit crunch, will almost certainly fail. The liquidity gap, and plummeting returns, have forced business owners into unfamiliar territory.


Where can you get help to help you navigate this unfamiliar economic terrain?


Not for traditional interim management and consulting companies who continue to offer the same prescription. This is where Icebreaker can help:
