Description:
This course was formerly known as MGMT 934
This course focuses on how to recognize, analyze and deal with the special problems of organizations facing turnarounds or crises. The course covers a framework that encompasses early warning signals to detect problems, then takes students through basic and advanced turnaround techniques and examines how to return to leadership. The multi-discipline causes and cures for turnarounds, including marketing, finance, strategy and human relations, are discussed. These principles apply to helping many different types of organizations, including early stage companies, mature corporations (or underperforming units of same) and not-for-profit organizations. The use of corporate bankruptcy as a sword or shield is also covered. Cases are assigned to teach how entrepreneurs and leaders of more mature companies have successfully and unsuccessfully dealt with serious problems. Note: This course may not be dropped after the second week of the quarter.
