When is an Interim Manager the best solution?

An Interim Manager is an excellent solution when the business is facing a challenge transformation, vacancy or sick leave. All assignments are unique and by hiring an Interim you get a leader who knows exactly what you need at exactly the right moment. An Executive Interim Manager is a short-term injection for a project or a specific task, that focuses on the assignment and is invaluable in changes such as strategy projects, implementations or to drive growth.

“A lot can be delegated, but someone has to make the decisions. An interim dare to make quick decisions.”

”My operational focus is better rewarded as an interim compared to as a consultant.”

Qualified leaders with a strong focus on results

An Interim Manager is no administrator simply filling a temporary vacancy. He or she takes an operating responsibility and delivers in line with the purpose, goal and requirements of the assignment.
It could be about stepping in as a temporary CEO, Group President, Head of HR, Head of IT, line manager or as a qualified specialist and project manager. When a process, function or unit is in need of change or when a company is struck by a severe crisis. Or in connection with a turnaround, strong expansion, and international realignment programmes.
