Abstract
The aim of this study was to examine determinants for successful turn-around of a failed bank i.e. given that a bank had failed and later the bank was successfully turned-around, the study sought to know the specific factors that contributed to the success of the turn-around process. The study took Azania Bank Limited as the case study and used views and opinions of employees and board members of Azania Bank Limited and Bank of Tanzania through survey method. A sample of 78 respondents was taken whereby 74 respondents submitted their responses i.e. 95% response rate. Documentary review assisted in obtaining additional important information in respect of the Bank. The analysis of the collected data used descriptive statistics approach whereof Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) was used in the analysis. The findings of the study revealed that change of board of directors, top management, bank name and target market is very important to the success of the turn-around of a failed bank. The study also revealed that effective oversight of the new board of directors and top management is equally important for the success of the turn-around process. The study further revealed that supportive regulatory authority and banking laws and regulations are extremely important to the success of the turn-around of a failed bank. From the study, recommendations were made to Azania Bank Limited, the banking industry and the Government/regulatory authority on how to ensure that there is effectiveness in the turnaround process for a failed bank. The recommendations are expected to provide more profound knowledge and guidelines for turning around a failed bank.
