Some situations require fast action.
An Interim Executive is often the best solution: If the company is not able to take urgent measures, company management and owners are increasingly relying on Interim Managers. In doing so, you successfully insource knowledge and experience. Interim Managers are also increasingly being used for unforeseen or temporary vacancies. They bridge the time until a suitable successor can take over the business.
If new paths are to be taken or new markets opened up, temporary managers with the appropriate know-how and experience can significantly increase security in the company and the probability of success. Interim management with “know-how on time” is also ideal for temporary projects or the introduction of new programs to conserve internal resources and reduce frictional losses.
