There are plenty of situations and reasons that determine the need for the use of Interim Executive Managers.
To illustrate, many of our assignments start off with a situational scoping brief that reads like one of the following examples:

  • Sustained growth:
    “We have rested on our laurels for too long and we have not been placing enough emphasis on inno- vation in recent years. We need to work closely with our existing customers and to acquire new ones in order to solicit appropriate feedback from them to be used as input for product and service development. We are urgently looking for an experienced sales and marketing professional on an interim basis who is well connected in our industry.”

  • Increased competitive advantage:
    “Competition in the medical technology sector is getting fiercer by the day. New foreign suppliers keep entering the European market with inexpensive yet attractive products. We are not able to compete with them in the long run. Where can we find an experienced interim manager who will work in tandem with our experts to develop and launch new products and services for our customers? There is no alternative for us if we want to strengthen our position in the market and to compete in the international marketplace in the future.”

  • Secured future:
    “While we are flooded with new orders, we do not have sufficient qualified engineering staff to complete them. It seems everybody is competing in the war on talent. We have now acquired a foreign competitor in order to retain experienced staff. Our biggest challenge right now is to find a skilled Commercial Director to professionally handle the acquisition and the subsequent integration for the transition period.”
