There are always phases in the life cycle of a company in which the classic management functions do not or only insufficiently take effect. In these cases, interim management can be an effective means of filling management positions in the project environment or in the line organization at short notice.
Interim managers assume responsibility for the results of their work in a line position. They leave the company as soon as the problem is solved and a stable new company or divisional management is established.
In addition to professional expertise and soft skills such as social competence, communication skills and willingness to learn, good interim managers also possess in-depth knowledge of change management.
