Typically overqualified for the role, interim managers are committed to deploy their knowledge, talent and experience to rapidly resolve a variety of business issues. They are at the same time strategists and hands-on implementers.
Skills & Experience
Interim managers are experienced executives with specialist skills, a broad management experience and a track record of achievement. They also have outstanding interpersonal skills and project management experience.
Interim managers hit the ground running. They are recruited with a clear set of deliverables and a fixed, often incredibly short time scale in which to deliver. They know how to quickly fit in and get things moving. They deliver from Day 1 as often, there is a burning platform (the absolute and urgent need to move) and the value of this delivery speed can be enormous.
The interim manager will not only lend fresh eyes to old challenges but he will also apply the insight and wisdom gleaned from working with other companies to your situation.
Hired on the understanding that objectives will be achieved rapidly, interim managers are able to quickly grasp situations and are focused on delivering results with a lasting impact.
