Why Interim Management?
Interim Managers are managers that are employed in time-limited mandates for temporary vacancies or to compensate for a shortage of resources and lack of know-how. The capital of the interim manager is his experience, his competence - consisting of knowledge and methodological skills and in particular his personal abilities.
Interim managers assume responsibility for the results of their work in a line or project function. Interim managers assume responsibility for the results of their work in a line or project function. They leave the company, once the problem is solved sustainably and the existing organization has again taken full responsibility.
An interim manager typically works under the following conditions:
• Bottleneck of quantitative or qualitative nature on the customer side
• Time limited activity
• Position in the first or second leadership level with managerial authority
• Responsible for programme or project management
• Reporting to senior management
Customers appreciate interim management mainly because of:
• the short-term availability of external managers,
• the efficient and fast appointment process, and
• the timely implementation of projects.
Particular demand for interim managers exists
• in bridging vacancies,
• in turnarounds and reorganisations,
• when entering new markets,
• when setting up new businesses, and
• to manage and implement complex projects.
Many of the Interim mandates therefore focus on corporate development, increasing efficiency, crisis management as well as program, project and change management. Customers also benefit from interim managers to procure specific external expertise.
