A business turnaround is necessary in situations where an organisation or business unit is loss-making, facing persistent underperformance, or experiencing an incident that threatens its fundamental existence or viability, such as the withdrawal of a license to operate.

Businesses will often undertake ad hoc change initiatives in response to a crisis to address the immediate issues but these can frequently fail to be fully adopted or change the critical fundamentals of an organisation. Focusing on these often provides temporary relief but does not address the underlying issues that enable organisations to realise and deliver sustainable changes in business performance. ​

​Fundamental structural, technical and behavioural issues will be driving the crisis but will not likely be identified, visible or understood.
