Defined as experienced, highly qualified senior professionals who are available at short notice to fulfill a specific role over a predetermined [or sometimes undetermined] period of time.
Why Interim Management? An interim manager is characterized as an experienced executive or project specialist, available when needed, for as long as needed; a doer (not an advisor), an implementer (not a report writer), a “hands-on” manager (not a consultant); and he or she will be "sensibly overqualified" for the task, making for a minimal learning curve and being effective from day one.
Many turn to interim management when they are planning a merger/acquisition, or are selling an operation. Interim managers are often called in to manage specific business critical projects, or to drive through a major change. Others use interim managers to plug a short-term, business critical gap created by an unexpected departure or by a bankruptcy or foreclosure situation.
Our interim manager can quickly become a part of the client's managerial resource to fulfill specific roles as and when required, committed to all its objectives and dedicated to its well being, quickly gaining cooperation and respect. He or she bears the hallmarks of impartiality, honesty and quality, for the next assignment depends on the reputation from the last.
