FAQ - Interim Management
As an interim manager, I take responsibility for results in management positions or temporary projects, e.g. bridging a gap, transforming a business unit or implementing new business methods and processes. Within the framework of an interim management mandate, we mutually define the objectives and the associated success factors. Once these have been achieved, the interim management mandate ends. In other words: I’ll be on my way once we reach our defined goals.
The consultant's focus is usually on developing strategies and recommendations for action. The interim manager is an expert who supports the implementation and realization of strategies in a company’s operations. There is indeed some overlap between creating and completing a strategic implementation. Adapting strategies for making a plan operational is also one of the tasks of an interim management.
Due to my experience and expertise in various situations, I am used to dealing with the most diverse challenges, situations and people in the shortest possible time. In doing so, I rely on analytical, conceptual and successfully proven practices in the field. “The quick start” is an advantage for my interim clients.
Projects generally run from 6 to 12 months, or longer, depending on the initial situation and desired objectives. Interim management mandates under 6 months are usually the exception. Especially mandates involving change processes require a longer timeframe to ensure a sustainable outcome.
The Dachgesellschaft Deutsches Interim Management e.V. (DDIM) is the leading business and professional association for interim management in Germany. It acts as a lobby for its members and as the voice of the industry.
