An interview with Adam Salzer, executive chairman of Salzer Consulting. When asked of his methods for turning companies around, Salzer explained that initially he would do scoping study and find out whether the problem can be fixed and then he proceeds to designing the process and conditions for success. Salzer claims that downsizing just to cut cost is bad since this will have long term impact on the company and those who stay will see that management doesn't care. He believes that the recession will be deep since domestic demand has disappeared.
