Consulting Services

Leveraging the expertise of our practitioners, Interim Executive Solutions offers a number of technical resources and consulting services to our clients. These services can be provided individually or as part of comprehensive programs such as:

Sustainability Assessment

An independent organizational review, gathering input through staff, Board and stakeholder interviews and analyzing key measures of stability and impact, that will surface and prioritize issues that should be addressed in order to stabilize and strengthen the organization. This review will also inform the Board as to whether the organization would benefit from additional temporary capacity and professional expertise to address time sensitive tactical and strategic needs.

Transition Planning

An effective transition plan ensures that there are well-defined roles and responsibilities in the event of an unexpected crisis or an anticipated departure, and that the steps needed to prepare the board and staff for a new leader are clear. This process will inform the Board as to whether internal candidates are ready for larger leadership roles and what roles may need to be backfilled as a consequence. Where a highly qualified successor is not immediately available, a transition plan can assess whether an internal appointment could effectively fulfill the interim role or whether the organization would benefit from additional capacity and professional expertise to address time sensitive tactical and strategic needs.

Interim Placement

When professional interim leadership is appropriate, IES can provide seasoned professionals who have the requisite skills and knowledge and will fit the culture of your organization. Our process includes learning about your needs, carefully identifying candidates from our pool of experienced professionals, and, should you select one of our associates, supporting your Board and the Interim Executive Director throughout the entire engagement.
