Interim management is a quick and effective way to fill roles that are temporary or to fill important staffing positions when a permanent employee cannot be brought on board in a timely manner or may be too costly.  Interim management programs are very flexible and tailored to your specific requirements – from one day per week, on or off site, to a temporary full time role, or any arrangement in-between.  

Popular interim management roles include;

  • Continuation of an initial program – many times, after the successful completion of a new business development program, our clients will ask us to stay on board in a part-time capacity to further develop the new opportunity until they hire someone full time.Ideal for SBIR awardees through a Phase II program and after for commercialization and market launch.
  • Temporary direct sales – an agreed upon set hours per week or month to jump start the sales process, identify interested prospective customers, secure RFQs, and close orders. This is especially popular for our clients interested in developing a new market but not wanting to upset current sales operations until the opportunity proves to be large enough.
  • Establish a North American sales office – this is very popular with European firms who want to establish a sales presence in North America but cannot justify a full time, fully burdened position.
  • Program director for a new technology in development. Why hire a full time person if you are not sure if the technology will be viable or if the opportunity may not justify additional full time resources? An interim program manager can guide the technology from development to market launch and transition it into your existing organization . . . then leave . . . but be available in the future on an as needed basis.
  • Executive and senior management sales and marketing position responsible for departments, business units or other programs until a full time candidate is found.
  • Change agent to facilitate, expedite and diplomatically “kick and prod” an organization to change in a manner that will help result in additional growth
  • Short term project managers for specific new business development initiatives
  • Quick hit mentoring & training programs to co-create and integrate formal new product development, new business development or strategic planning processes into your organization

Your interim manager;

  • Will most likely be a degree’d engineer with an advanced business degree and direct and/or consulting experience with your technologies, product types, applications and markets
  • Is highly adept at working in a deliverables/deadline environment
  • Brings many years of experience with proven practices and processes that can be transferred to your organization
  • Will integrate into your current environment but not become biased and/or constrained by personalities or politics
  • Possesses all the benefits of an effective consultant but takes it one step further – implementation
  • Is an effective solution to keep fully burdened head count down
