Interim Management for Transformation Programmes
Could an interim manager be exactly what your transformation programme needs?
In the current market the management of people and the reduction of back office costs have never been in sharper focus. We are seeing HR transformation on more agendas, focusing on changing the way in which HR functions operate, by increasing its capability and delivering tangible cost reduction.
Specialist interim managers have the capability and track record to kick-start and deliver this change. The term ‘interim management’ is still widely misunderstood – it doesn’t refer to temporary solutions or fixed-term absence cover. Interim managers are highly experienced professionals able to lead start-up and turnaround situations, ensure programme delivery and affect change.
What is the future for the HR landscape?
In the past, HR transformation mostly focused on making existing HR services more efficient, effective, and compliant. Looking ahead, organisations should consider their place along the HR transformation journey to focus on developing and honing HR capabilities that reach beyond simply supporting the business strategy – and rather enable it. Executing the right strategies, HR can enable organisations to address key business imperatives of today and the future, including:
- Globalisation and emerging markets
- Cost pressure
- Talent attraction, development and retention
- Innovation and emerging technologies
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Risk and compliance
In a world in which businesses must compete in an ever-wider arena while doing more with less, human capital is emerging as the most challenging to secure, and the most critical in order to ensure success. People and performance issues are common concerns to organisations in every industry, particularly in our current economic climate. It is now more important than ever that you have the capability to improve your business operations through your people.
