Running a foreign subsidiary

Do you have international operations and just lost the head of one of your foreign subsidiaries? Is one of your facilities abroad struggling? In both cases you must quickly step in to stabilize the situation and bolster your management team. Have you considered interim management?

Your issue

Managing a crisis, putting a weak organization back on track, strengthening your market position or boosting your business are all objectives that might require stepping in to help your subsidiary. Managing in international business environments calls for multicultural expertise, especially where diversity should generate added-value. But it’s not always easy to find this kind of talent in-house. And it may be nearly impossible to find a manager who can quickly adapt to the local culture.

Our solution

What if you got support from an external, independent expert, well acquainted with this type of assignment? An interim professional is an efficient operational solution that’s instantly available. S/he will be able to quickly assess the subsidiary’s needs and how to meet them. S/he will revitalize the local staff and, in needed, recruit additional talents to round out your teams. S/he will gradually and objectively align the subsidiary’s strategy with that of the parent company, bringing the results up to par with the defined goals and establishing a regular system for tracking and reporting on the subsidiary’s performance as well as laying the groundwork for gaining additional market shares.

An assignment with Valtus

Your Valtus Partner will identify your challenges and the means for most effectively reaching your objectives. Then s/he will prepare a specific roadmap, including the right interim manager or the most appropriate options if there is more than one.

The interim manager that you choose to work with will start by creating a diagnostic report of your specific situation and recommended step-by-step action plan which s/he will then implement. You and your interim manager will have regular updates led by your Valtus Partner throughout the assignment to make sure everything remains on track at all times.

Your interim manager, along with your Valtus Partner, will present a final report, which will include his/her recommended next steps. S/he will prepare the files to be handed over to the person who will be taking over his/her role. We will ask you to provide us with a debrief and feedback along with our client satisfaction survey.
