Over 25 years EIM has proven the effectiveness of our project management process, working in close collaboration with the client and supporting the interim manager to resolve the transition challenges facing the business.
Fast results-oriented management of change
A co-operation for excellence
The successful completion of our 8,000 assignments over the last 25 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.
We initially aim to identify a local interim manager with the right credentials. If necessary, we extend the search internationally. Within days, the right individual or team is in place to implement change decisively, after a rapid assessment of current business conditions.
The EIM partner remains in charge of the assignment. He continually assesses progress, voices an unbiased point of view and, when necessary, brings 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.
