The main idea of interim management is the short-term assignment of a proven heavyweight interim executive manager to manage a period of transition, crisis or change within an organization. In this situation, a permanent role may be unnecessary or impossible to find on short notice. Additionally, there may be nobody internally who is suitable for, or available to take up, the position in question.
This business model in modern practice was created in the mid-1970th of the 20th century in Netherlands as a reaction to the lack of inflexible labour market. In the 80th years, the concept has spread mainly in the UK, USA, Germany and Switzerland.
