What is Interim Management?

It has long been accepted that speed rather than size is the key factor in business success. Agility and responsiveness are key to business success and survival.

Interims are experts in their field and can give key change projects immediate impetus. They increase the strength and depth of the senior management team to support change, provide expert project direction and momentum, rather than the business trying to manipulate the skills of existing employees to fit project needs. In addition, interims are usually available within days as opposed to weeks or months and carry none of the long commitment required in hiring a permanent employee.

Unlike consultants, who tend to offer expert advice interims consult, plan, advise, implement and embed the lessons before concluding their assignments. They operate outside any company politics, which might impede project success and offer no threat to incumbents. They offer a fresh and unbiased view, constantly assessing the business benefit rather than personal gain.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

An interim does not attract any of the long-term costs and commitment associated with permanent employees, such as NI, holiday & sickness pay or other benefits. Expect to pay an agreed daily rate to a limited company, which includes all necessary insurances.

Typical rates are around £600-£900/day, but can start as low as £400 and rise  to over £2,000.

The increased speed at which an interim led project runs means that the ROI is typically substantially greater than in-house projects where lack of experience, internal politics and pressure of BAU all tend to hamper progress.
