Essential Skills: Restructuring

Return to growth

Once a distressed business has been stabilised, there remains a need to shift the focus towards seeking opportunities for profitable growth.
Return to growth can be inorganic such as mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. Or it can be organic through strategies such as new product development, pursuing adjacent markets and performance improvement.

Recognising that different organisations will have different options for growth, in this course we discuss the pros and cons of inorganic and organic growth approaches. Organic growth strategies are explored in further detail using the Kano Model, design thinking and other related approaches.
