Digitalization in companies helps to reduce costs and work more efficiently. Therefore, processes will be analyzed first and subsequently redesigned by digital solutions and automatizations. Experienced interim managers support this process and motivate employees during the drastic change to adapt the way of working together.
If the company’s surrounding is in drastic change a strategic repositioning is essential. This adaption demands an adaption in culture as well as thinking. The interim manager accompanies and leads this process as a project leader or temporary leader.
Interim managers analyze and improve the way of working in production, supply chain, purchase, human resource, and It infrastructure. Next, processes are optimized together with the team or new structures implemented as needed.
If a company is in red numbers over a while it is crucial to rethink processes, products, locations, sales, and organizational plans. Interim Manager fulfills this task of restructuring to ensure profitability. Therefore, the outside perspective and experience play a key role.
The moment a leadership vacuum occurs Interim managers fill in this vacancy implementing new structures or improving processes. Thereby the new leader profits from the prepared organization and the company by economical consistency.
The interim manager delivers to the busi-ness the needed experience, the essential knowledge and the desired skills. He is available immediately and remains in charge just for the necessary time. He assumes the responsibility and the leader-ship of the mission. He leaves as soon as success has been achieved and things are back to normal.

A temporarily vacant position in management is rightly avoided whenever possible. It becomes particularly dangerous when the completion of a major project is on the brink. Read here how the use of an interim manager made the decisive difference.
Locations abroad should give a company competitive advantages. For example, through proximity to the customer or through lower labor costs. In practice, however, different workflows and processes as well as a lack of transparency often lead to a high level of communication and administration work within the supply chain. We will use a concrete example to show you how our interim managers can lend a hand in such cases.
The implementation of a whole series of open IT projects came to a standstill and there was no discernible progress. A real estate service company therefore brought an interim manager on board to analyze the deadlock and get the projects back on track.
Overcoming challenges as foundation for future success.
