High quality approach to short-term resourcing
The strategic direction of IT management functions tends to be mission-critical. If an IT project or team is not led by the right person, for whatever reason, organisations can face real difficulties. Because of our breadth of experience through Impact Executives, Alumni and the Harvey Nash group, we have the resources to meet virtually any request for interim IT help, in the Nordics or internationally.
Effective and cost-effective IT management
Our clients realise that the calibre and experience of an IT management interim is usually greater than can be expected of a permanent staff member. This means the quality as well as the scale of an interim’s contribution is much higher than a permanent employee, and more than compensates for the small difference in costs.
Supply Chain + Procurement
Specialist input at times of strategic change
There are critical times in an organisation’s development when procurement management hits the top of the agenda. At these key times, Impact Executives can provide access to highly experienced managers with the talent and expertise to resolve issues.
Our interim managers typically join us at the peak of their careers with strong experience in supply chain re-engineering, which is often beyond the experience of the permanent team. They are able to solve major challenges, within days of your request, supporting the existing team or covering a key vacancy.
Interim management can help companies in many ways that may not be immediately apparent. Our executives can provide:
- strategic skills that remove the need for external consultants
- a hands-on and results-driven approach that makes them the ideal people to implement the conclusions of a consultancy exercise
- highly focussed energy and enthusiasm that results in clear value for money
- specific skills and experience only while you need them, with no on-going employment costs
The fact that many of our clients return to us time and again demonstrates the quality of our service and the results our interim managers can deliver. In many cases the same professional is specifically asked back to take on additional or sometimes significantly different challenges, because of their proven flexibility and expertise.
It is very rare for our interim managers to be asked to maintain the status quo – change is usually at the heart of every assignment. Impact Executives understands the constant demands of change and has developed an outstanding network of experienced interim leaders, offering best value and delivering change at the time it is most needed.
Leading the team
Our interim managers lead major change or business improvement programmes in a diverse range of sectors, supporting our clients through the change process in many ways. In addition to their grasp of the theory and methodology of change (Six Sigma, etc) they bring a variety of specialist expertise to each role.
Our interim change managers are experienced in winning the hearts and the minds of the workforce in what can be a difficult journey. Beyond skills of persuasion and motivation you will also find them well versed in the tougher aspects of change such as downsizing, relocation or re-assignment.
