taskforce-Statement from Volkmar Halbe: “The Interim Manager in rescue operation – if focus on results, reliability and confidence are indispensable”

Nearly every company can suddenly come in a threatening situation: Realignment, restructuring, turnaround usually come much faster than might have been predicted shortly before. If, however, potential for success, assets and/or liquidity deteriorate dramatically, it depends primarily on rapid and effective action.

Whether you are a CEO, CFO or CRO – Interim Manager take responsibility in such situations immediately. Your task is, without detours to stabilize the position of the company to make it return-on this basis and establish competitive. Often already are restructuring plans in which the causes of the crisis outlined mapped out the Restrukturierungsweg and measures are named, their consistent implementation then pending. Increasingly, the interim manager is already involved but in the identification phase of the renovation. Its distance to the “history” as the “internal politics” of the company, its mission and cross-industry experience and the familiar use of scarce time budgets and high pressure of expectation are key success factors. Professional interim managers come quickly “to the point” and take the necessary measures to immediately. This includes, of course, the negotiations with internal and external stakeholders. Therefore is the good news: “A CRO never comes alone – with it comes the hope” as once wrote Harvard Business Manager.
