Interim Management Services

In addition to Fusion consulting services, we realize that sometimes what is needed by an innovative organization is more than just a temporary consultant but less than a full time employee.  In these circumstances, Fusion has the ability to provide innovation strategy professionals for extended periods of time.


There are a number of different business circumstances that might result in the need for a Fusion Interim Executive.  Typically these could be situations such as crisis management, sudden departure, change management, managing a transition, sabbaticals, MBOs and IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, and, product launches and general project management.

Several factors make the Fusion Ventures interim management value proposition increasingly popular and cost-effective for our advisory clients.

These following traits characterize some of the value that Fusion interim managers offer:

Return on InvestmentFusion’s experienced managers provide an outcome, solution, service or risk mitigation that provides a measurable ‘Return on Investment’ to our partners. While our managers are typically paid on a monthly stipend (though some times equity-based or deferred-fee arrangements can be used), such payments continue to be made on the understanding of goals and objectives being performed and delivered, and not simply on the basis of attendance.

Speed of Placement- Our managers can be in place within days as opposed to weeks or months (essential when time constraints are paramount). They are quickly effective upon joining a partner organization because high-speed engagement is the appropriate standard response to high potential innovation opportunities. Our managers also conduct and complete assignments at due speed because they have the necessary expertise and effectiveness to do so.

Subject Matter Expertise - Fusion managers will be sensibly over-qualified for the position they are taking on and bring the knowledge and expertise required to have an immediate effect from the outset.  They will have experience in facing similar challenges to those of the project and be well qualified in minimizing the risk of things going wrong and, more importantly, maximizing the likelihood of success.

Objectivity - Unencumbered by any previous involvement in company processes or management relationships, Fusion managers provide a fresh perspective and are able to concentrate on what’s best for the business. They are are able to side-step company politics and contribute straight-forwardly, without constituting a threat to incumbent managers.
