What is Interim Management?

One of the most common questions we get asked as providers of Interim Managers is, What is Interim Management?

Interim Management can be best described as the temporary use of an appropriately qualified interim manager by an organisation to complete an assignment aimed at achieving a particular set of business objectives.

The Interim Manager engaged for the Interim management assignment has usually enjoyed a successful permanent career and has now chosen to offers their skills and experience to companies for temporary (interim) roles usually of 6-12 months duration.

These interim roles typically become available in businesses as a result of business transformation, turnaround or to provide cover as a result of a temporary gap in the senior management organisation.

Specialist recruitment organisations called Interim Service Providers (ISPs), of which Aster Interim Solutions is one, can be used to help identify Interim managers with the necessary skills to match the interim assignment requirements.
