It wasn't until the 1990s that Interim Executive Management started picking up in France, one of the last countries to enter this market. By that time it was already a widespread practice in the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom, where it first appeared in the early 1980s. Nearly half of all companies in the UK, and one in three in Germany, have called on interim executives in the last two years.
Interim Executive Management was first used as a way of overcoming crisis situations. Today, it has evolved into a strategic operational solution that companies implement to improve performance and successfully deal with various changes, including structural and organizational changes, diversification and new project initiatives.
Interim managers are increasingly solicited to implement strategic projects rather than simply handle crisis situations or turn a company around.
