“ABC Computer Distributors” – a Pennsylvania-based company – was heading for bankruptcy due to poor leadership, causing substantial operating losses. In “The Turnaround”, Robert Curry recounts the actual events of this successful turnaround describing the profit-improvement process he used to grow the company from losing almost $1 million on $48 million in sales to reporting $4 million in profit on $130 million in sales in nine months.
Bob wrote this book to demonstrate that one person can have an impact on a company. Not only an impact, but a significant impact – from a substantial lost to a substantial profit in just three quarters of a year. By eliminating nonproductive employees; generating an operating budget; implementing controls over spending; improving financial reporting; upgrading corporate policies, efficient communications, and procedures; and initiating corporate and personal goals, ABC Computer Distributors became profitable in the first thirty days of the turnaround.
In this book, Bob share his profit-improvement skills and tasks with you, so you can use them in your company or organization to improve your profits. Much of the turnaround of ABC Computer Distributor focused on sales growth and employee productivity. In Bob’s first book, From Red to Black: A Business Turnaround, the story of the turnaround focused on improving the management and operations. While both of these books are about turnarounds, the are unique, informative stories on how Bob made these organizations profitable.
This is a true ‘Red to Black’ story that every business executive should read and use as a reference manual to grow their business, improve their management skills and increase the profits of their company. Bob Curry’s first book, ‘From Red to Black’, was focused on improving management’s leadership skills, productive business operations, and hiring the best employees. Throughout ‘The Turnaround’, Bob’s second book in the From Losses to Profits series, he has highlighted the ‘Best Practices’ that he used to grow the company’s sales, improve the productivity of the management team, and take the company ‘From Losses to Profits.”
This book is very easy to read and makes a ‘bookmark’ obsolete. You will not be able to put this book down until you have read the last page. Keep a notebook close to record Bob’s ‘best business practices’ while you read this book. Mark my words, you will read this book more than once…it is a great resource to learn more about how to make a business more profitable.”
