Interim management is known to us as a proven and successful model that has been employed over the years in Western Europe, however not commonly used in Central and Eastern European markets. We would like to put effort in promoting this way of cooperation within Czech Republic and other countries in our region. Our aim is to create and continuously develop a group of certified Interim Managers acting at top-level managerial positions.
Would you like to be an Interim Manager?
To be an interim professional is a privileged position which offers an unparalleled opportunity to drive through change and to make a real difference.
What do I need for?
Most importantly is personality and the professional experience of the candidate. Interim Managers are experienced people with corporate track record, project mind and it is their own decision and conviction to conduct specific projects.
There is no universal Interim Manager, but within one industry a certain universality is possible. An Interim Manager is not just a Consultant, who suggest solutions, but also implements them. As he is perceived as a part of the managerial team, he is authorized to set up tasks for employees of the client company.
