EIM is a global leader in providing interim or permanent executive management solutions when time is critical. Our clients rely on us to have a highly qualified manager or team of managers in place within days. These are strong, accountable leaders who take charge, inspire others to go above and beyond – and ultimately achieve sustained improvement.
The successful completion of our 8,000 assignments over the last 20-plus years is based on EIM’s unique project management methodology. This revolves around a three-way collaboration between the client, the interim manager and a senior EIM partner. EIM partners are senior executives with line management experience and practical consulting knowledge, who take overall responsibility for the transformation projects. Working in partnership with the client, the partner quickly establishes an understanding of the situation, and draws up recommendations for appropriate actions to improve it. Our search for the right interim manager starts immediately after this stage.
Executive Interim Management (EIM) was established in 1989 by the leading executive search firm Egon Zehnder and the Dutch management consultancy Boer & Croon, which pioneered the concept of interim management in Europe. In the course of almost 26 years and 8,000 successful assignments, we have expanded into 14 countries to become a worldwide leader in interim management solutions, Our policy remains to operate as a global integrated firm with all offices working together, sharing our best practices across national boundaries. This global mind-set, combined with the use of proven project management methodology, assures results that reach the same high level of quality the world over.
EIM executives and client partners share experiences and best practices on how to achieve success in the first 100 days of a business performance assignment. This practical knowledge is also useful for more traditional management roles and companies during less turbulent times. The First 100 Days book is included in the reading list of the Interim Management Diploma Program at Lorange Institute of Business in Zurich.
