From the cover: “Based on the major BBC2 television series, Troubleshooter brings Sir John’s management expertise to bear on six British businesses. All except Apricot Computers have a turnover of less than £100m a year but their individual profiles are varied. While Apricot and Tri-ang toy company compete in a tough international market, family enterprises like Stoke-on-Trent’s Churchill group, the Morgan car company and Copella Fruit Juices face critical challenges closer to home. And the problems of the Shropshire District Health Authority, Sir John’s other port of call, are formidable. How do you manage an organisation upon which people’s lives depend within the constraints of a tight, fixed budget? Sir John Harvey-Jones works closely with senior management in the six organisations he visits, focusing on the major strategy questions facing them. How can they increase production while maintaining quality? Should they seek a merger partner in order to expand? Is it sensible to diversify into new areas? Is it wise to go for international growth, albeit in the face of stiff competition?”
