The ever-increasing demands of customers and constantly developing technology has meant that it has never been more important for companies to adapt and change.
To achieve change successfully, you need the appropriate capability at each stage of your business transformation. However, BIE research shows that only 42% of business leaders believe they have the internal capability to deliver transformation.
As a result, organisations are finding that the best approach is to build blended teams of internal and external talent to manage and deliver change. By bringing in external talent, organisations can shape their people to become more responsive, more flexible and more adaptable.
Businesses are capitalising on the opportunity to get experienced individuals to work with them who know how to go through change and who can physically roll up their sleeves and deliver, not just advise on what they theoretically should do.
With change set to stay on the agenda, interim executives can be brought in to empower and nurture internal talent, embedding a positive legacy of an agile, change-able organisation.
Interims in demand have strong functional knowledge, enabling them to understand the market, accurately assess business performance, and build a high-performing team that will drive the transformation forward.
They need to be self-driven and self-motivated to lead on projects from the outset and make an immediate impact.
