The AlixPartners QuickStrike®

QuickStrike® is our fast, effective methodology that identifies the issues affecting a company’s performance, reviews the available options, and plans the solution – in a matter of weeks. In a QuickStrike®, we work closely with management of both performing and underperforming companies to bring clarity, confidence, and speed to results in a variety of situations.

QuickStrike® can be used in a variety of situations…

  • Companies in industries that have undergone significant structural changes
  • Companies seeing major erosions in sales levels and/or margins
  • Well-performing companies that have grown stagnant or complacent
  • Underperforming companies that have structural, management, or organizational issues
  • Highly leveraged companies straining to meet debt obligations
  • Divisions/subsidiaries that are cash drains on their parent companies
  • Unrealized synergies in rollups and mergers

…to define and accelerate a path to results

  • Create a clear pathway to success that highlights what levers to pull and when
  • Target the most effective ways to improve profitability and liquidity
  • Ensure a holistic approach that limits duplicating work and covers all areas of the business
  • Enable immediate action on quick wins, creating positive momentum that builds on early successes
  • Prepare for implementation with clear recommendations on what capabilities will be required
  • Develop a roadmap for sustainable organizational change

The AlixPartners QuickStrike® process is guided by a set of pragmatic principles to drive speed and create buy-in
