SYNOPSIS: 

Many viable businesses in Jamaica are in need of turnaround from losses and financial distress. This book provides solutions from a new perspective: a simple, yet highly effective set of profit pathways developed from a sharp review of international literature and exploration of the business models of Jamaican firms. Lawrence explains why business renewal is an urgent need in Jamaica and presents an effective roadmap for firm recovery from organizational decline. He offers detailed descriptions of the major sections of the roadmap with relevant case studies.

Written in clear and simple language and well-illustrated with tables and figures, Business Renewal and Performance in Jamaica adds to the existing literature on strategy by integrating findings from prior studies and adding the context of business renewal in a developing Caribbean country. Business managers, consultants, accountants, lawyers, policymakers and students will find the book to be useful reading and reference material.

WILLIAM W. LAWRENCE is a management consultant and founding director of the Professional Services Unit, Mona School of Business and Management, University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. He is a member of Turnaround Management Association (TMA) and has helped to rescue several Jamaican enterprises from losses and financial distress.
