Situation Analysis


     Step 1. EMT - Emergency Management Tips

      First things first. Time to take a hard look at cash. Where is it going and where is it coming from? This section       will help you take the first step and "Stop the Bleeding."




      Step 2. Environmental Analysis

      Analyze those things that are out of your control. The national and local economies, competition and       governmental influences. Right now we are only concerned with threats. If you survive you can look for       opportunities later.



      Step 3. Internal Analysis

      Analyze the internal components of your operation. Look at human resources, financing issues, and take a       hard look at yourself.



      Crunch Time

      Now you've done the initial analysis. It's time to decide if there's a chance of survival and if the sacrifice will be       worth it.
