Interim Management in the Industry

MANAGERIM provides you with interim managers who are experts in the industry to help you meet your transformation challenges

The health crisis has triggered profound disruptions in the economic tissue at both the global and European levels and has revealed certain weaknesses in the current industrial model.

In an increasingly competitive market context, industrial companies are accelerating their transformation to develop their flexibility, produce more efficient and varied products, and increase productivity by optimizing manufacturing costs and shortening delivery times.

To achieve this, industrial companies in France must meet a number of challenges:

  • Pursue continuous performance improvement efforts to gain competitiveness
  • Accelerate the digital transformation of their tools, methods and processes across the entire chain (industrialization, order reception, manufacturing, maintenance, delivery, inventory management, after-sales services, customer relations, etc.)
  • Strengthen the automatization and robotization of the production system
  • Optimize resource mobilization (energy in particular) and reduce the environmental impact of their activities
  • Strengthen development and innovation efforts and adapt production chains to new consumer needs
  • Reduce dependence on certain foreign suppliers
