The quest for performance and development encourages companies to adopt project-based management. The diverse roles that the stakeholders play influence project configuration. I work externally in managing these organisational projects. They range from mergers and acquisitions to major changes. As such, it is essential for me to link up my role based on the strengths and skills that already exist in the company.
The complexity of these projects is mainly due to relationships, and the scope of the mission always has an impact on the existing organisational models. It is thus also important for my role to evolve in tune with the constantly changing team dynamic. I therefore always offer my clients carefully chosen options, so that they are the ones who make the decisions. As for me, I implement the selected methods and categories of action.
I use the art of influencing to suggest the project organisation I can implement and coordinate, harnessing existing internal potential. This makes it possible to steer major change and transformation programmes.
General management supports this. It wants to modify cross-functional processes or to steer organisations in a new, more creative way, so they are in tune with the market and with client expectations.
Interim management requires more than the abilities that are most obviously required for the profession, and the knowledge which leads to our recruitment. You must also have a keen sense of humility, the will to share, and be a very good listener. You must also be able to quickly win the confidence of the client. As such, you must step into an environment where our hiring agency has earned a reputation in terms of skills, inspired confidence in terms of feasibility, expected results, and an understanding of the issues at stake.
MPI is a key player in this role, providing the intervening manager with the level of quality we need to execute our functions as best we can.
