When your business has a critical staffing need in the operations or supply chain team, we help you fill the gap quickly with interim support. Our vetted professionals can step in within days—so your business keeps running smoothly while you focus on finding the ideal candidate.
Combat the talent shortage with interim management services
Having the right people in operations and supply chain leadership roles is essential to keeping your business on track. But if a manager, director, or VP leaves, or if a new position is created, it can take 100 days or more to find and hire the right person. In the interim, the daily demands of your business won’t wait. While you can’t afford to rush hiring decisions or risk the consequences of putting an unqualified, ineffective position in a key role, your business also can’t keep losing ground without the leadership it needs.
Our lean leadership and team development services include consulting and coaching, conferences and workshops, and a fully accredited lean leadership certification program.
While our focus is on interim management to fill vacant or new roles, we can also provide leaders to manage and oversee specific initiatives or projects, such as a switch to an ERP or a rollout of a new tool or process. And if you’re interested in the option of hiring a resource long-term, we can work with you to set up “working interviews,” or short-term placements that allow you to evaluate candidates for permanent hire while they work.
Fill the gap quickly
We leverage our screening tools and our own in-depth operational know-how to quickly present you with multiple candidates with the skills and experience to meet your needs. Once you make your choice, the candidate can get started at your location in days. And we work with you to conduct periodic reviews and ensure your ongoing satisfaction throughout the placement.
We have successfully led lean transformations on the job and have helped organizations around the world do the same. We offer comprehensive services scaled to meet your needs in areas that include:
