Many universities are now discovering a resource that allows them to deal with management skills shortages, to become more commercial, or to accelerate the pace of change in a cost effective manner. Interim management offers a quick, flexible solution to a range of strategic and operational challenges. There are no up-front charges and you only pay for the time you actually need for a particular assignment.

|Comment from John Wilson: The CBI report Stronger Together – Business and Universities in Turbulent Times was launched at their Higher Education Summit in London, with some poignant comments by various speakers.
I was particularly interested in Professor Breakwell’s view that more needs to be done to optimise efficiency citing areas such as shared services and estate optimisation. This was echoed by Lord Mandelson who stressed that HE institutions needed to operate more like commercial enterprises. Extracting greatest value from inputs. He also noted the value of support in managing and running universities.
Please contact me (details on the right) if you would like to discuss in a very realistic manner how interim management can offer viable added value.
