Turnarounds have traditionally relied on finance for success. In recent years, the situation has changed, now placing importance on operations as a source of value creation.

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate and answer the following questions:

  • How often do companies fail due to mismanaged operations?
  • In which situations can supply chain management become a competitive advantage?
  • What is the potential value of a turnaround based on supply chain management?
