Interim managers, also known as temporary managers or transition managers, are managers who are appointed at short notice and assume full operational management responsibility. They also convince with their professional and personal authority. Being effective quickly and sustainably is a key success factor in interim management.
In most areas of the economy, the trend towards individual, flexible and tailor-made work solutions has prevailed. While temporary staffing has become globally a widespread business, Interim Management has been applied mainly in special situations, with a strongly growing trend. “One for all and for at least 4 years…” is replaced by the objective: “Exactly the right know-how for a specific task or situation. At the right time and for the necessary time period”.
Shortages in management functions
Forward-looking companies simply want tailor-made management in special situations. They want optimal results, value-for-money, low risk and greater flexibility.
In situations of shortage or management vacancies, clients increasingly use interim management to bridge gaps or to support their own management capacity. This gives companies time to find the best possible successor for the position or to complete an important project on time.
Be in the right place at the right time.
