Return on Interim methodology

Monitor & measure performance. Achieve more.

Our Return on Interim® methodology is a smarter way to engage, oversee and incentivise interim managers and executives. It provides you with performance management data, enabling you to accurately quantify the value your interim managers deliver.

We recognise that the identification of an excellent interim manager is only the first stage of the journey, our unique methodology is used to agree key objectives, assess and understand the difference between ‘good’ and ‘great’ performance, track milestones and progress throughout the course of the assignment, from start to finish.

Service features

  • The Return on Interim® app is a simple and intuitive cloud-based tool available wherever and whenever you want, on PC/Mac, tablet or mobile 
  • Performance data is presented visually, timesheets are integrated with the performance dashboard and profile and compliance information are always up to date 
  • Once the assignment is completed, we assess performance against objectives, knowledge transfer and assignment outcomes – to accurately measure the Return on Interim® 

How it works 

Step 1: Definition

We start at the end and focus on the outcomes that our clients want to achieve from their assignment. For every assignment we spend time understanding your business and goals. We define what success looks like to ensure there is absolute clarity on the potential value added or ROI. We know the difference between good and great outcomes and offer pricing strategies that promote exceptional performance.

Step 2: Identification

We only select the best - you can rely on our network of proven interim executives to solve your business challenges. Our consultants and interim managers are motivated through the higher returns and accreditation of performance that our Return on Interim® methodology provides. We measure results from the start of the assignment, so you'll see, as well as sense, your 'return on interim'.

Step 3: Measurement

We provide you with a real-time view of all your interim assignments through your Return on Interim® dashboard. We review objectives and milestones to ensure your great outcomes remain on track. We make success visible.

Step 4: Results

At the end of the assignment we review its success. We provide a detailed report, that examines the value delivered, looks at the legacy left from the work delivered and what can be further developed and optimised.
