Management Solutions

Project and interim management

The pressure faced by organisations involved in the Environmental industry is intense and from time to time businesses and Public Sector bodies may require managerial help and support to overcome shortfalls in their staff structure. These shortfalls may be a result of peaks in workload or as a consequence of key management roles being left vacant due to promotion, resignation, secondment, restructuring, maternity leave or ill health.

In each of the cases described above a suitably experienced Interim or Project Manager could be the most cost effective and appropriate way of managing the service and maintaining service levels until a viable long-term solution becomes available.

Alternatively, an organisation may have a particular Project or Programme that needs managing but does not have the time, resource or technical competence to manage it. Specific strategic or tactical projects could include integrating two or more services together, mobilising new contracts, procuring a new service, facilitating and leading organisational restructuring, organising relocations, implementing new technology, etc.

The key to these projects is that they are one off projects that do not necessarily require a permanent role. Instead the appointment of an Interim or Project Manager with the skills and experience required could be the preferred option. This is particularly the case on large one off projects, such as contract mobilisation or service procurement, where the in-house resource is unlikely to have the experience of managing such projects due to their irregular nature.

Appointing an interim manager can also be an excellent way of maintaining service levels whilst recruiting, mentoring or coaching a permanent manager for a particular position.
