The business recovery services (BRS) practice provides advisory and insolvency services to lenders, creditors, companies and individuals who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties, from weakening performance and reduced operating profit to crisis marked by severe cash problems and the imminent threat of insolvency.
Companies often exhibit these symptoms of distress well before a crisis erupts. In many cases, a downward spiral is not inevitable. It can be arrested and reversed. Early detection and swift, decisive action are the keys to restoring performance and value. That's why timely, expert advice is critical.

Organizations struggle mightily to meld their strategic intent with their operations, leaving a gap between the strategy they develop and their ability to execute that strategy in day-to-day business. What's needed is a better capability to understand the pulse of the organization—not only what is going on financially, but also in terms of operations and compliance - actionable management information to guide their operational and financial decisions. Developing a strategic performance management approach drives sustainable performance by aligning the activities of the management team and employees with corporate strategy.
orporate Performance Management (CPM) is a framework that integrates strategy with business operations. It gives management a prospective and real-time picture of what is actually going on across the value chain and provides a robust platform to support future growth. It helps executives address the fundamental business questions of: How are we doing? Why? What should we be doing?
PricewaterhouseCoopers' holistic approach to CPM helps clients improve management information and prospective visibility through alignment of financial, operational and regulatory metrics that drive accountabilities, decision support and operational execution.
With a focused and proven approach, we help clients with:
- Planning optimization
Improve the reliability and process efficiency of prospective information, including driver based budgeting and rolling forecasts.
- CPM tool deployment
Evaluate, design and optimize CPM tools and data models supporting planning, analytics and reporting (e.g., Hyperion, Cognos, Business Objects / Carthesis).
- Dashboards, scorecards and KPI development
Improve operational efficiencies through appropriate alignment of targeted metrics measuring the organization’s performance from customer, operational, organizational and financial perspectives.
- Change management and organization elements
Leveraging metrics and data to align compensation and rewards programs with corporate goals.
Shared Service Centres and Outsourcing
Our team assesses current operations and evaluates the costs and benefits of existing procedures and structures. This includes preparation of business cases for change, including risk assessments and mitigation programs.
Alternative models, which are typically considered, include shared service centers and outsourced services, including local and offshore options. We are able to manage not only the structuring and implementation of service agreements with potential vendors, but also the implementation of internal shared service centers.
