A co-operation for excellence

The successful completion of our 8,000 assignments over the last 20-plus years is based on EIM’s unique project management methodology. This revolves around a three-way collaboration between the client, the interim manager and a senior EIM partner.

EIM partners are senior executives with line management experience and practical consulting knowledge, who take overall responsibility for the transformation projects.

Working in partnership with the client, the partner quickly establishes an understanding of the situation, and draws up recommendations for appropriate actions to improve it. Our search for the right interim manager starts immediately after this stage.
