Applied Software can assist companies to face new
challenges which need the best available strategic
resource without the long-term commitment.
Company re-structuring, changes in policy, mergers,
sudden changes in personnel there are many
reasons why your business may have to cope with
a range of problems about which your staff have
End-users who have not used an Interim Manager
tend to have mixed views about interim management.
Whilst they appreciate specialist knowledge/experience
and the ability to raise skill levels, availability
and speedy outputs, they are also concerned over
costs, demotivating existing staff and a knowledge
gap at the end of the contract.
A recent survey of users found that 77% Managers
felt positive about interim management, with the
areas of advantage being specialist skills,
no challenge to the permanent staff, enthusiasm,
new ideas, flexibility, focus, time constraint
forces results, access to top management skills
for the period, no ambitions within client company,
twice as effective as staff, dedicated to client
not to a Consultancy, frees staff to manage day-to-day
We acknowledge there will always be internal
politics but this should be assessed at the beginning
of the contract and addressed. With regard, to
a knowledge gap we believe we can give continuity
and support as and when required after the contract
on ad hoc basis or a support contract.
