Why Interim Management?

This is the key question, why IM? The advantages of Interim Management are not simply economic as you might think at first, having excellent professionals in any department of your company can be the differentiating point that makes it grow and achieve the objectives or adapt to a new market situation faster than the competition.


Companies are often faced with new situations to which they have to adapt, in the face of this change or adaptation they must act quickly and manage risks, but the excellent experienced professionals they need for change are difficult to find and, often, they are costly and their hiring ends up delaying the resolution of critical problems. Excellent and qualified executives are increasingly rare and traditional recruitment methods slow, leading to a high opportunity cost.


The concept of Interim Management started in the Netherlands in the mid-1970s. Dutch companies wanted a model that would allow them to comfortably access specific high-excellence talents for predetermined periods of time to fulfill key tasks and launch new projects.

The additional degree of flexibility and scalability provided by Interim Management proved to be very effective and the model was established in the UK in the 1980s.

During the last 30 years the use of Interim Management grew between 20% and 40% annually worldwide.
