Why do entrepreneurial organisations such as GPA, the largest modern aircraft leasing group in the world, or Goodman International, the largest meat processing group in Europe, plummet from a long track record of profitability to overnight catastrophic losses and financial crisis? Similarly, why do long established organisations such as Guinness, Irish Press, P.J. Carroll or Waterford Crystal enter a downward spiral in business performance to such an extent that they seem to require a change of management to avoid collapse? The richness of the material and analysis and lessons brought out in this study of real-life cases will be invaluable to all who are concerned about the health and self-sustaining capacity of organisations as a critical economic resource and social entity. They are of relevance to company directors, managers, bankers, accountants, stockbroker analysts, investors, civil servants and trade unionists. In addition, academics and graduate students in the fields of strategy, management, finance and accounting will find much of interest in the cases and analytical frameworks adopted.
