Interim management has been around for a long time. Both in economically good times and in recession, skilled interim managers play a crucial role within organisations. With the common thread always being that they can be the difference that takes the company further.
In practice, interim management is generally implemented with a strong focus on restoration. For instance, when departments are in need of streamlining, or when a complete reorganisation is needed. Something that’s less common, is using interim management to achieve growth and development. That’s a shame, because there are many opportunities to be found here.
