Interim Program and project Managers

Nordic Interim collaborates with the most experienced interim Change Leaders on the market

Running large and complex programs or project requires a leader with extensive experience to navigate business-critical initiatives both quickly and safely.

For large changes and projects, it is required that you have the right skills and leadership. Often this does not exist internally, or it is simply not in your budget. To ensure that your initiatives reach the set goals regarding time, quality, and budget with realistic schedules, milestones, risk analyses, control plans, and financial follow-ups, many business leaders choose to hire an interim Program or Project Manager to achieve the desired result as quickly as possible.

“Some things that are consistent through all assignments, is to understand where you are going – the direction, why you do what you do and understand what abilities will be required going forward.”

To lead during a change

Leadership during a change means guiding the organization and stakeholders from the current situation to the desired goal in a structured way. A large program is often very expensive in terms of time, resources and capital and it is therefore important that it is carried out in an efficient, long-term, and sustainable way.

A Program or Project Manager plans, leads, and manages programs or projects and creates the conditions for the team to succeed. Leadership is of the utmost importance as the Interim Manager is responsible for how the program proceeds and for quickly fixing problem areas.

The assignment is to run the program or project as smoothly and painlessly as possible

Without the right leadership, the goals are rarely reached in time and the program can be very expensive. A good change leader can get everyone on board while the business is running as usual.

In some cases, the program or project requires expertise knowledge in a specific area, and in other cases, it is an advantage to bring in an interim from another industry with new perspectives.

Examples of programs and projects where an interim leader can be a support to the organization are in large investments where you need to ensure the coordination between different parts of the business, large infrastructure projects, or digitization.

The advantage of engaging an interim Program or Project Manager:

  • The business does not have to set aside a resource that also has to carry out his/her regular tasks.
  • An interim leader is completely dedicated to the task.
  • An interim Program or Project Manager has successfully made the same journey several times before.
  • An experienced Interim Manager has solid and confident leadership which gives the organization stability and peace.
  • The program is carried out on time and on the right budget.
