An Interim Manager can be brought in to improve recruitment processes. Depending on the size of companies there is a difference how competence is acquired and retained, channels, techniques etc. A new situation can call for a quick reorganization of processes and tasks. An outside view of the situation is an asset when implementing sensitive plans or inventing new schemes.
When a crisis hits it will take the full effort of the top management and communications. This situation can be eased by an experienced right hand person to handle the day to day crisis communications internally and externally. An extra pair of hands can manage the situation hands on and relieve the strain on your team. SMB’s that do not have a dedicated communications person but need it from time to time, can use an Interim Manager in strategic communications and marketing efforts to get results and things done quickly and efficiently.
When your team needs a fresh, new kind of thinking to kickstart your re-branding, product launches, new marketing initiatives, digital marketing or social media, an Interim Manager can bring that altered perspective to get things going. Any overhaul of your organization, goals or marketing tools benefits from a fresh perspective on things and out-of-the-box thinking. An outsider can bring in new ideas and practices.
