What is Interim Management?

Definition of Interim Management

Interim management has become widely accepted as a key part of the executive board member’s toolkit, introducing transformational leadership experts to manage periods of business critical change. Interim managers are often called delivery consultants, transitional managers, independent professionals or transformation directors. Whichever term you prefer, interim managers should be board level executives or board influencing executives who solve problems and deliver specific outcomes.

The Hiring Process

Gap Analysis

The business identifies a challenge or resource gap. Even if the solution is not clear at this stage, we can begin to analyse your interim needs by determining your current issues and desired outcome.

Interim Manager Shortlist

Our depth of experience means we can quickly identify with your business issues and compile a shortlist of suitable interim managers with the capabilities to deliver your desired outcome. Their experience will range from delivering transitional management solutions through to filling management gaps.

Meeting the Interim Manager

The interim manager will be introduced to the board member with responsibility for sponsoring change management. The meeting will take the form of a discussion about the business issues and the interim manager will be asked to give specific anecdotal examples of where they have improved results and delivered sustainable change.

Setting Objectives

The board member or budget holder will then agree with the interim manager and IXPA a set of objectives for the interim manager to deliver. The interim manager will ensure that they deliver transitional management with internationalisation in mind and they will always be respectful of the business structure and culture.
