Interim Management

INTERIM MANAGING DIRECTOR
OF A MEDIUM-SIZED IT COMPANY

OUR APPROACH

Within the first weeks we completed an analysis of the firm’s strategy, capabilities and market approach. We decided to sharply focus the scope of the product and service offering towards a next generation system-house providing excellent cloud-based solutions for corporate IT infrastructure and workplaces.

We invested heavily in the development of expert capabilities, modern processes, quality standards, and state-of-the-art technology in the field of market-leading cloud services and solutions.

We also introduced an open corporate culture through transparent and regular communication at all levels and built a modern physical workspace for flexible teamwork and corporate sozializing. Finally, we actively managed the search, selection and onboarding of a permanent managing director.

VALUE TO THE CLIENT

The sharpened product and service offering and the enhanced capabilities produced a strong momentum for the company in the rising market of cloud services and solutions.

The introduction of modern processes and quality standards produced additional market opportunities with larger customers.

The   availability  of  state of-the-art technology, the open corporate culture, and the modern work-space attracted additional talents in a highly competitive labor market.

CHALLENGE

CHALLENGE

The foundation’s governing board of a leading group of specialized hospitals contracted us to take the role of the foundation’s director (CEO-level) for the group on an interim basis. The clinics of the group are one of the leading orthopedic competence centers in Europe and one of the largest specialist orthopedic clinics in Germany. The goal of our engagement was to further stabilize the group during the vacancy phase of a permanent director and the times of the Corona pandemic.

OUR APPROACH

We applied our rapid onboarding approach interviewing more than forty managers and representatives of key personnel within the first two weeks to get a 360-degree picture of the situation.
We further stabilized the group through a limited set of organizational and process changes in the interaction and collaboration of managers of the different clinics, operating units, and administrative functions.

With regard to the financial effects resulting from the Corona pandemic, we closely monitored and managed available liquidity and lines of credit. We also took a strong focus on short-term actions to improve profitability and also improved the monthly financial reporting organization and processes.

In close coordination with the medical directorate, we were able to build and execute an effective strategy for the clinics, other operating units, and administrative functions to deal with wide-ranging operational, medical, human resource, logistical, and financial challenges caused by the Corona pandemic.
