External experts are experienced managers who are able to quickly “jump” into the work of the organization and achieve the goals within the agreed deadline. An interim manager is an appropriate solution in situations where it is necessary to act immediately – to overcome specific challenges, successfully implement of the project or fill the vacancy until a suitable performer has been found.

How to hire Interim manager?
Interim manager life cycle in the company consists of 3 stages
Diagnosis of the situation
Together with the company the problem is defined. After that evaluation takes place, where FORCEO obtains direct information about the situation in the company and the problems to be solved. After such evaluation, a report and working plan are prepared, which contain the results to be achieved and the tasks to be performed, as well as the recommended Interim managers.
When a common understanding of the situation and its solutions is reached, an agreement is signed and the Interim manager starts work. The work is carried out according to the agreed plan and a progress report is provided once a month.
When the agreed term of the contract draws to a close, the transfer of knowledge to the person who will perform this role in the future is implemented. The Interim manager usually engages directly in the selection of a successor and their work in the final stage takes place together. After the end of the project, an analysis of the project progress and recommendations for further activities is prepared.
