3. Revitalization Support Business
The Group are pleased to offer total support in business revitalization, from drafting of a business-revitalization plan to implementation support, reconciliation of interests with financial institutions, participation in management for the purpose of reorganization (turnaround) and support for various processes associated with revitalization.
A key feature of the Group’s revitalization-support business is the hands-on support they offer for management innovation (support for implementation of management innovation by permanently seconded staff). At the Group, “Hands-on management innovation support” means the dispatch of consultants accomplished in management innovation (turnaround) to serve as members of the corporate client’s management team, providing direct support for the execution of revitalization plans and management innovation. Companies need management innovation not during business-as-usual but in times of crisis; if management innovation (turnaround) is poorly implemented, business failure (cessation of business) becomes a real possibility. Mindful of these high stakes, the Group commit fully and directly with the client to draft the revitalization plan and implement management innovation, seeing the project through to realization.
