Advantages of an interim manager
 

  • Short term availability and extremely steep learning curves: The interim manager starts within just a few days and, as an experienced project manager, is quickly on top of the business at hand.
  • High implementation focus and a clear goal: The tasks defined in your requirement profile are implemented effec-tively and efficiently.
  • Independent expertise: The selected interim manager is neutral, not having been involved in past decisions, he has an unbiased view of the situation.
  • Knowledge transfer: The interim manager has wide-ranging and specialist expertise and is hand chosen for a specific project; you benefit from this knowledge.
  • Predictable costs: We only charge for the time the interim manager is on assignment, termination periods are short and there are no separation costs.

Powerful decision-makers – managers for decisive situations!

The recruitment process

This is how our recruitment process at Heuse Interim works

Where are interim managers deployed?

Typical interim management fields of deployment

    Projects:

    The interim classic: You need a manager, but only for a temporary project, e.g. to test a new product on the market with a calculable effort or to relocate a business.
    Advantages of an interim management solution:

    • Costs are incurred only as long as the service is required and can be accurately calculated in advance.
    • Example – Reduction of manpower: This takes the strain off internal HR employees.

    Urgency:

    A position has to be filled immediately, e.g. due to illness or short-term separation.
    Advantages of an interim management solution:

    • Our interim managers can be presented "off the cuff" and can start their work immediately.
    • For many "classic" interim management situations, we have candidates on stand-by who have already worked successfully for us in comparable situations and are therefore "safe bets".

    Bridging vacancies:

    Case 1: The candidate that you favor for the permanent position can only start in several months due to existing notice periods.
    Advantages of an interim management solution:

    • Making a decision becomes much easier for you by filling the position competently by an interim manager in the meantime.

    Case 2: Maternity substitution / Sickness substitution
    Advantages of an interim management solution:

    • Competent employees are retained in your business.
    • You avoid having to "demote" an internal employee who has been placed in the posi-tion in the meantime once the original holder of the position has returned.

    Unclear situation:

    You do not yet know whether you want to keep a business, sell it, initiate bankruptcy proceed-ings or recapitalize it. In situations such as these, a permanent appointment does not make sense.
    Advantages of an interim management solution:

    • The position is filled competently and you keep all your options open.

     

    Reorganizations/restructurings/turnaround/growth projects and management sparring:

    This partly overlaps with the situations mentioned above. This involves a project business (change management), is highly urgent and the situation is usually unclear. A manager in perma-nent employment is not happy about a professional position in a publicly known restructuring case, this however is not the case with the interim manager, quite the contrary, the CV of an interim manager is adorned by situations such as this.
