Interim Management

InCoH offers temporary provision of management resources and skills. During periods of transition, crisis, or change - or when a top manager has been granted a sabbatical - a permanent role may be unnecessary or impossible to fill on short notice. Or perhaps no one internal is suitable or available for the position. In these cases, one of our proven heavyweight executive managers is assigned in the interim.

The following describes how our interim managers typically enter a role. Bear in mind that interim management requires a high level of trust.

During initial contact, we explore your requirements to understand whether we fit your needs. This generally involves a brief assessment of what you think we as your interim manager should contribute.

As your interim manager, we will shadow you on the job, following you for every part your role. This helps us understand the current situation and gives a chance to get to know your organization’s key stakeholders.

During the last days of shadowing, we will present a detailed proposal which acts as the objectives and plan for the interim assignment. Our proposal is likely to challenge your understanding of the situation. As interim manager, we will propose the solution which is most likely to be effective, even if this isn’t the one you originally requested.

As contracted interim manager, we take responsibility for managing the intervention or project. Depending on the assignment, we get as close to the situation as necessary, while remaining an independent practitioner.

Towards the end of the project, we ensure the objectives have been met. This stage may involve knowledge handover and sharing lessons learned during the process. This is usually the end of the interim manager’s stay. However, sometimes interim managers continue to provide occasional ad hoc consultancy. And in some cases the interim manager is re-engaged for a follow-up or separate assignment.
