Interim Leadership

Just in time and just the right amount of leadership and/or support. We only engage in leadership roles when asked. Fill a particular role, such as budget manager, director or senior analyst for a single cycle or partial cycle until a replacement is hired and trained. We can assume the role of project manager for a particular project, such as a general ledger and/or payroll system conversion. We can map existing to new dimensions, create new imports & test, while working on other projects in supporting roles. There is no intent to permanently fill any existing roles. We are here to support organizations short term, long term or somewhere in between.
