Thousands of businesses, large and small, fail every year. According to The Writing on the Wall most instances of business failure begin with early warning signs of trouble, which are clearly discernible, provided we know where to look and what to look for. Targeted at managers and business owners who want to avoid the mistakes made by many businesses, this book highlights the common pitfalls that lead to business failure, and aims to assist readers to identify where their business may be off track and provide advice on what they can do about it before it\'s too late. Author Dr Terence Sheppard is a management consultant with over 25 years experience in lecturing, consulting and business management.
