Basic Facts on Why Interim Executives Can Make Money for Your Company
Interim talent—the “gig economy”—is one of the best-kept secrets at every level. And all successful companies know it. These days, a company’s size is no longer judged by the number of employees it has. Large companies like WhatsApp and Instagram have been run by significantly fewer employees than one may think, valued in the billions. Even with this small size, these teams are still making the company money.
• The goal of interim executives is to provide a return on investment for their services. They are saving the company money, making the company money, or creating the foundation for these to be accomplished (making the company money) once they complete their assignment.
• Interim executives are on-demand. They are utilized for specific purposes for a finite period—when and where you need them.
• Interim executives bring expertise and require little to no onboarding or oversight.
• Interim executives embed needed skill sets into the organization, not themselves, so it can thrive once the assignment is completed.
We urge you to explore the possibilities of interim, part-time, and project-to-perm models the next time you find yourself staring at a problem that feels absolutely insurmountable. You don’t always have to hire a full-time VP to get VP expertise.
