Interim Management has finally come of age to manage change and transformation

By Ashton Ward. Published on 30 March 2015

Clients are now turning to interims as a viable alternative to engaging consultancy firms. With evidence of countless success stories in the market, trust has grown amongst hiring decision makers. When your competitor delivers a complex change programme, on time and under budget using interim managers, your ears prick up! Change is now a constant in business and as such, this requires a change in resourcing strategy.

Critical to maintaining this impetus is the ability to identify senior level professionals and, as a specialist executive level interim provider and functional specialists within Business Transformation, HR and Finance, Eton Bridge Partners has access to a talented pool of carefully-chosen associates.  There is real depth to the talent pool of our Interim managers, and as such clients trust us to deliver large scale programmes.

These are individuals who combine change management expertise and deep functional capability, they are not just the catalysts for change, they embed change for the future. Interims deliver solutions, develop your people, transfer knowledge and leave a legacy. Contrast this with the traditional consultancy approach of providing advice, opinions and options.

Importantly, we don’t promise a senior level professional and deliver a junior team member. The equivalent independent Interim will have the battle scars of delivery and a track record of success in different environments. As a result they add tremendous value at considerably less cost. Interims are independent and accountable.

Whether the requirement is for an individual or a team of professionals, our flexible and agile approach means we can tailor specific solutions to our clients’ needs and deliver long-lasting results.

If you would like to hear more about our capabilities, please do get in touch.

Happy Easter!
