Interim Managers have become widely recognised as a uniquely flexible and cost effective way of injecting specialist expertise into an organisation during a period of intense need. Typical projects might include:
- Delivery of major change projects
- Introducing new processes and systems
- Turning around under-performing teams
- Raising the standard of services
- Transferring skills to an in-house team
- Getting existing projects under control and back on target
- Filling a gap in your management team.
Adamine specialises in deploying and managing highly skilled interim consultants into public, private and third sector organisations.
No mere ‘jobbers’, our interims have made a lifestyle choice to work on time-limited projects where they can rapidly make a difference. Bored by ‘business as usual’ they are motivated by achieving measurable differences for clients and leaving a sustainable legacy that sees the organisation in a better place. Indeed their personal reputations depend on them doing so.
Our reputation depends on ensuring we source and carefully match high-calibre candidates to the right opportunities and put in place a performance management process to ensure they add measurable value throughout the placement.
We spend time with you to develop a deep understanding of your needs and the key objectives of the project. Working together we build an understanding of your organisation’s culture, your expectations of the project and where you have skills gaps.
This enables us to select the right interim or interim team to meet your specific needs. In most cases, we will have several people who have the skills needed to complete the project successfully. This means we can also focus on ensuring a cultural fit, which can be critical to the sustainable delivery of the project.
If you are facing a challenge and unsure of the most effective way to address it, we can connect you with senior thought leaders in our network. They will take you through a series of diagnostic tools to assess your needs and provide practical recommendations.
It’s essential to get a shared understanding of what good looks like right at the start of an assignment. So we use a structured enquiry process to establish a shared understanding of the key outcomes and the expected return on investment. This delivery plan provides clarity to the interim and enables you to describe to stakeholders why the interim is in place and what the measurable benefit will be.
We meet with our interims throughout the project to discuss progress against plan to ensure they are on schedule and meeting the agreed deliverables. Professional interims are experienced in evidencing their progress regularly and precisely, so this rarely identifies problems. This process also allows us to identify any potential issues promptly and react to them accordingly.
We conduct a monthly or bi-monthly impact assessment reviews to demonstrate the achievement of your objectives and a positive return on investment. We’ll also give you materials to share with other stakeholders to demonstrate the value of your investment decision.
