Turnaround Management

Business emergencies may occur due to internal or external reasons. Some situations can be resolved quickly. Others last for weeks, months – even years.

At Kaifa we have gathered experience from a wide range of crisis situations in China, from profitability problems and turnaround efforts to strikes, threats against employees and large scale divestments of business units. We help you to stay on top of the situation and work out a common plan how to not only resolve the crisis but also help you to continue on a safe, competitive and profitable journey ahead.

Project Management

Leading projects have been within our comfort zone for many years. A typical project led by us contains elements of performance improvement, process development, IT implementations, compliance and documentation.

Cost, Schedule and Performance (CSP) remains within our focus to ensure you are constantly on top of the project from initial feasibility to final delivery and closing. Risk assessment and mitigations are constantly within our radar during entire project life cycle, allowing you to identify, tackle and avoid challenges before they turn into road blocks.
