The ITMS is a guided system through a corporate turnaround based on over 1500 references, countless interviews and over 150 turnaround cases. It is applicable to virtually any situation and industry targeting the most common reasons why turnarounds fail while utilizing the success factors and strategies that led to successful turnarounds over the past 30 years.
The ITMS is based on project management techniques and existing restructuring methods and tools, However it is not only about project management and turnarounds, it furthermore includes financial restructuring techniques, strategic & operational strategies, marketing aspects, crisis communication aspects with stakeholders (to maximize the support and minimize bad press) and internally, controlling, quality control processes, of the turnaround itself, risk management, etc., etc.Imagine you are the CEO of a troubled company or a turnaround manager. The ITMS will be a framework that is divided into different stages, in which you can easily find the situation that your company is in. Let's say you have products that don't sell well, you are in a certain competitive environment with few global players that practically own the market, and you have financial difficulties. You will find your situation in the ITMS and the ITMS will tell you proven, through our examination of more then 150 case studies, strategies out of that situation (if there is a way out).
The International Turnaround Management Standard™ (TIMS) is a method and guided way to achieve a sustainable turnaround. The ITMS includes all possible aspects and business areas that need to be analyzed and considered when restructuring a company:
Strategic- & Operational Strategies
Crisis Communication Management
Project Management Techniques and Methods
Controlling and Management of Risk
Quality Control processes
The standard, furthermore serves the turnaround management team as a guideline of what they need to do at what time, how to do it and who you need to provide information too and what other aspects you need to take care of.
In a nutshell: The ITMS targets all the major problems why companies fail in turnarounds; insufficient support of shareholders and lenders, non-comprehensive turnarounds (with other words things where simply overseen, or not regarded as important), targeting of symptoms rather than issues, unstructured approaches to turnarounds, etc.
