Interims 'can solve internal problems'
Interim managers help organisations to make internal changes and should therefore not be treated in the same way as external consultants.
This is according to Business Week, which claims that companies must first acknowledge their difficulties and then find the right match to make the most of an interim appointment.
"It takes a certain kind of interim to listen effectively, quickly diagnose problems and implement solutions," the publication explains.
Shirley Balarezo, president of California-based firm Tone Software, explained how hiring an interim recently helped her company to develop a successful global sales strategy.
She revealed that one of the biggest advantages of the move was the fresh perspective offered by the interim employee.
"He is a very experienced sales executive who has no biases about our company or product, no favourites and no political gamesmanship," Ms Balarezo said.
Tom Hadley, director of external relations at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, recently explained how interim expertise can be used to solve short-term hiring difficulties in highly-skilled roles.
