Unlike consultants or temporary staff, where costs tend to drop to the “bottom line”, interims focus on the delivery of benefits to your business. The outlay on the cost of an interim should be matched by a multiple of benefits over time.
Business owners, directors and senior management tend to utilise in-house resource to deliver their strategic and operational objectives, assuming their staff have the requisite knowledge, experience and gravitas to deliver expected results. In many cases there are prolonged increases in work load across the organisation leading to significant pressures on personnel, processes and procedures. The implementation timetables can often be delayed with functional areas “taking their eye off the ball” when it comes to sales, operations, cost, profit and cash flow, and perceived improvements and synergies are often significantly diluted.
If you have an operational or strategic project that requires implementation and you wish to discuss how an interim finance resource can work with the business, contact firstname.lastname@example.org at MW Interim Finance or see our website at www.mwinterimfinance.co.uk
