How to make the toughest decision

If your business model has run out of steam, you can’t afford to wait. Here are six steps to help you make difficult strategic decisions more quickly.

  • Do you replace your management team with one that can better face the future?
  • Do you shut down operations that have served you well for years but are no longer economically viable?
