What is interim management?
This is a managerial solution that consists of temporarily entrusting a management position to an external manager. The purpose of what we consider to be a fullyfledged profession – interim management – is transformation through management. We intervene when two factors come together:
- When the organisation needs resources, in the event of a vacancy;
- When the organisation is currently in a state of transformation, transfer or radical change of direction, which requires the integration of a person able to accompany the teams in said change.
What is the difference between an interim manager and a transition manager?
Unlike interim management, CAHRA’s interim projects do not only meet the need to replace a managerial position. The projects that our interim management firm carries out include a strong transformative dimension, which will be reflected in the internal processes and managerial culture. The interim manager sets in motion the tools and methods to bring about change, involving the internal staff in a co-construction process, whereas the interim manager is content to occupy a position until a new manager arrives.
The very name CAHRA is testament to the difference and added value of our interim management firm. Indeed, the latter is a reference value at international level; we have added the H to stand for Human being, because it is at the heart of our concerns, as much as it is the key to successful transformations. Our belief is both simple and ambitious, basic and subtle to implement: to operate the transformation from the existing, with the men and women within the company and by successive “touches” – without rushing the system.
CAHRA is in France in Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Paris, Reims, Rennes, Strasbourg ou Toulouse. We are aslso in Italy in Milan.
