Interim executive application case study:

Scenario 1: A software company has experienced several years of downturn and hoped to find an interim CEO to help the company adjust its strategies and improve its programming skills.

The interim executive assumes position as the interim CEO and spends several days to discuss the current business condition with the company's senior executive team. He stipulates clear-cut short-term objectives and strategies and receives approval from the board of directors. Moreover, he decides to focus on more profitable businesses and effective project management to concentrate on the development of a vital new product. After thoroughly executing the short-term plan, the company eventually turned loss into profit.

After steadying the company's business, the interim CEO turns his attention to improving its operating procedures and aims to develop the company's framework and system from a small scale to that of a medium sized company. When the interim CEO finds a full-time CEO from the board of directors, he hands over the company that he has salvaged to complete his mission.

Scenario 2: A telecommunications company has been acquired by a group, resulting in the resignation of many senior executives. The company is unable to fill such large number of vacancies in a short period of time.

A temporary sales development executive is employed via the interim executive approach. Having assumed position as a senior executive in related business, the interim executive has far superior experience than the company's existing executives. The sales executives are aware of the interim executive's strength and the nature of his tenure, thus they are willing to help the company get through the crisis under his leadership. The interim executive integrates 100 employees from three sales development organizations and adjusts the ratio of the sales channel. He even introduces several new clients through his personal contacts. As a result, the interim executive not only stabilizes the personnel and business of the development department, he has done so with unprecedented performance and efficacy.
