Either as planned or unexpectedly a company may face a situation where significant changes have to be made in the very short term. Managing such an exceptional situation can be a challenge that company is not capable or willing to manage by existing resources. In such case, a good option is to acquire an experienced and independent third-party interim manager. Typical situations can be:
- company has run into financial challenges and needs a clear change of direction.
- company has decided to move operations between its locations or even close some production unit.
- company is implementing a major investment or change project.
- CEO or some other key person has resigned. In order to ensure successful recruitment, the company would like to reserve enough time for finding a successor.
