Interim management is the engagement by an organisation of an independent executive within the middle to senior management band in a line or staff role for a limited and usually fixed period of time.
Interim Management is a specialist and relatively small sector, though growing very healthily. Why is this? Well, whilst traditionally seen as an ‘end of career’ option, this is definitely no longer the case. More and more senior are CHOOSING interim management, sometimes at the peak of their careers, for a whole host of reasons including challenge, variety, the opportunity to focus on what they love/are good at, as well as more personal ‘lifestyle’ reasons. Interim Management is much less nowadays about ‘holding the fort’ – temporarily filling in for gaps left by senior people (e.g. for maternity/paternity, sickness, leaving etc) and much more about delivering change (e.g. project/program delivery, turnaround, M&A, outsourcing).
Clients too are attracted more and more to interim management as they look for people with genuine experience, a strong track record and a focus on delivery. End -user satisfaction with interim management is very high.
