Phases of a Transformation

Generally, most restructuring or turnaround projects involve 5 phases.   These are the most common phases we will go through when called upon to help you through a transformation:

Assessment phase:

  • Once you determine that you need help restructuring, it is imperative that we begin working as quickly as possible.  Our team will conduct an initial assessment of the client’s distress or issues in cooperation with selected Client leadership.  Efficiency is critical, but not to the point that it impacts being thorough. The findings and recommendations are then presented and discussed before the next phase.

Creation of a roadmap and timeline:

  • In collaboration with leadership, Carnrite prepares a detailed roadmap and timeline. KPI’s are identified along with who has ownership & accountability for the delivery of the agreed-upon objectives and goals.
  • Most roadmaps include two or more options or paths to take, together with critical decision points.
  • Because of its extensive industry experience, Carnrite typically can support their recommendations with objective benchmarking data or examples of past success and best practices to support its recommendations.

Agreement on the path forward and desired roadmap:

  • Carnrite and the Client then finalize the roadmap and confirm the team members who will have responsibility and accountability to leadership.
  • Carnrite strongly believes, implementation and follow through is critical. Therefore, Carnrite stresses in each engagement that the client designates key personnel to work shoulder to shoulder with the Carnrite team to ensure that the roadmap is successfully and completely implemented.

Implementation: 

  • As referenced above, implementation of the roadmap and achieving the KPI’s and objectives is the objective. This is the reason that key client personnel are involved in the foregoing stages.
  • Carnrite believes that any roadmap or workout plan that is not implemented is a failure. Our experience has shown us that it is critical that any roadmap or plan, must have Client personnel who understand the plan and the objectives, and have the support of leadership to complete the implementation.
  • Carnrite roadmaps are typically prepared to include KPI’s, performance metrics and other directional guidance to act as a reference or ‘playbook’ for the client to reference going forward.

Follow-up:

  • In keeping with our mission, to become valued partners & trusted advisors, we will check-in from time to time to see how things are going, and are never more than a phone call, text or email away.
