A helpful tool for business students studying turnaround management and corporate renewal
A Casebook on Corporate Renewal spans a variety of business areas relevant to corporate renewal and turnaround management. Corporate renewal, as a topic taught and discussed in business schools, has surged in the past decade. The cases in this book were selected to cover the knowledge and skills needed by successful turnaround managers, including ethical and legal issues; developing a plan of reorganization; and defining problems and their solutions, including strategic, financial, and operating issues.
The cases challenge students to actively engage in the decision-making process in order to learn how corporate renewal is practiced in real business settings. The Casebook is meant to accompany the second edition of Principles of Corporate Renewal by Harlan D. Platt, but it can be adopted separately or used with other management textbooks.
Harlan D. Platt and Marjorie B. Platt are professors of business at Northeastern University in Boston.
“The casebook is a delight to read, either cover to cover or by picking cases that address a particular subject from the table of contents. . . Casebook on Corporate Renewal is an invaluable tool for students and turnaround professionals or for someone interested in teaching classes on the subject. It provides interesting reading on many of the issues that turnaround managers must contend with every day.”
