A co-operation for excellence

The successful completion of our 10,000 assignments 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.

Lasting results

The EIM Partners remain in charge of the assignments. They continually assess progress, voice an unbiased point of view and, when necessary, bring additional skills and/or knowledge into play from our global network.

This collaborative approach with continuous reviews ensures that we remain flexible enough to react quickly to any change of course imposed by developing needs or new requirements. Any additional resources necessary can then be called up from our pool of managerial resources.

Towards the end of the assignment, the EIM Partner develops, in collaboration with the client and the manager, a handover plan for the new permanent management team, to ensure a lasting continuation of the successful result achieved.

Our timeframe

START

GAIN AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE INITIAL SITUATION

A comprehensive discussion between the client and EIM Partner will outline the initial situation which led the client to seek an interim management solution. This discussion will also define the ideal profile of the ideal interim manager and answer the basic questions :
1. What do you aim to achieve by employing a manager?
2. Which issues do we want to address by doing this?
3. What kind of positioning gives us the best possible outcome?
4. What must the manager bring to the table to be successful?

SELECTION OF AND APPROACH TO SUITABLE MANAGERS

EIM carries out a systematic search in the strictest confidence for the ideal manager within the EIM interim manager’s network. After reviewing their career, training, experience and expert knowledge, number of eligible candidates are selected and approached by EIM Partner. To confirm the match with the target profile and availability, in-depth face-to-face interviews are held with the available candidates. The interim managers who appears to be the best match for the client’s specifications are selected.

1 WEEK

PERSONAL PRESENTATION AND SELECTION OF SUITABLE CANDIDATE

Each candidate together with a detailed assessment of his competencies and achieved results is personally presented for the selection process. In general, an EIM interim manager is overqualified for the task he is asked to carry out. This enables him to take on his role and rapidly integrate into the company structure capably and confidently. Our managers are used to adapting quickly to a client’s specific cultural and organizational conditions. Because they are independent and autonomous and have no previous connections or pressures within the client’s organization, they are best placed to carry out the job efficiently.

2 WEEKS

FINALIZATION OF CONCEPT AND START OF INTERIM MANAGER

As a rule, the interim manager will be able to start work a few days after the decision has been made. At the beginning of the deployment, the client, the interim manager and EIM Partner work out a concept and basic task specification to clearly establish the extent and type of tasks to be carried out.

5 WEEKS

INITIAL REVIEW MEETING

Together with the interim manager end-goals and milestones are established. A project plan with relevant milestones planning is presented and agreed.

MONTHLY

REGULAR STEERING MEETINGS TO SAFEGUARD THE IMPLEMENTATION

Alongside the project’s progress, regular review meetings will discuss whether particular obstacles or barriers may also need to be removed to achieve the desired project outcome or whether general conditions in the market or competition have changed which may require an adjustment to the project’s course. If necessary, active support can be called up in the form of expert opinions from within the EIM network.
