Interim management can be essential for the future of an organisation. No matter how temporary, the role that an interim manager plays can determine whether a business succeeds or fails.
Interim management is sometimes necessary when an organisation needs to be steered through a transitional period or when short-term change management is necessary. A temporary manager might be necessary if no one suitable can be found to take up the role permanently.
Similarly, an expert interim manager can set a company on a path that can be followed by employees and a longer-term manager in the future.
Alternatively, interim management might be necessary in times of crisis when a manager leaves or is removed at short notice and the organisation needs a safe pair of hands at the helm during a sensitive time.
