Can interim managers work at every level?

When considering interim managers, companies often think only of those working at the very highest - those who take on the temporary responsibilities of the Chief Operating Officer or other high ranking executives. While this has become one of the most common uses for interim managers, these operatives are not limited to this scope and can be utilised at every level of a business for a number of different tasks. While every interim will bring their own set of skills and talents, it is their versatility that makes them so desirable.

The value of the outsider

Every day in business, you do your best to keep the company running smoothly, ensure that your processes are efficient, and that staff are well trained and happy in their job. Everything you do is geared towards increasing productivity to ensure that the organisation remains successful. No matter what you do, and no matter how well you know your business, you could still be missing some way to work more efficiently.

Why don’t interim managers remain following change assignments?

Interim managers often provide a great service to their clients, implementing deep changes within the company over a short period of time. Their talent and ability often impresses those at the highest level, which can lead to an invitation to join the company on a permanent basis. While undoubtedly this is flattering, it’s not something that an interim manager is likely to accept, and goes against the philosophy of an interim position.
