Interim Management

What is Interim Management?

Interim management is an innovative and efficient tool, a managerial solution available to companies of all sizes to face an unexpected issue or a challenge or to accelerate their transformation

It involves hiring an external interim manager specialized in a specific field to temporarily manage a department, a business unit, a company or a major project. The interim manager's assignment is to support the change and improve the performance of the business activity or project for which he/she has operational responsibility.

MANAGERIM meets your urgent interim management needs in critical periods of growth, underperformance, change or crisis

Each project is unique. That's why our partners and our team of recruiters and talent managers are at your disposal to analyze your specific contexts and challenges and to meet your operational and managerial skill needs.

Together, we define the specifications of the transition assignment to be performed and make sure to integrate the priority challenges to be met.
