How interim management works
A company temporarily requires support. It contacts an interim manager provider as LJ Engineering. After a few days, the interim manager takes charge. He works in the company as long as he is needed. First he has to familiarize himself with his task in a few days and clarify any misunderstandings with the customer. During his mission, he has to report regularly on how he has created value for the customer and how he will continue to do so.
Get affected people involved
In many cases, interim management is change management; several employees are often affected by changes. They have to leave what they loved and were used to and perform in a new environment. It is worthwhile to include them in the change projects. They know their tasks and their environment from their daily business very well.
