Strategic Advantages

Organizations do not always have in-house executives with the right skills and experience, available at the right time – and the leadership that a business needs when faced with a complex challenge is not necessarily what it will need for the long term. Interim management is a smart, short-term strategy that can make a lasting impact.

Combining the strengths of an interim management firm with a top executive search and leadership consulting firm, Boyden Netherlands provides the leadership that is needed, when it’s needed. Our interim executives are judiciously selected and have a track record of delivering results, offering strategic advantages.

Speed: An interim executive can be engaged within a very short timeframe, even within days.

Expertise: Boyden’s interim executives are highly qualified professionals with substantial expertise who are able to deliver value immediately and effectively.

Cost: Interims work independently as a flexible resource for a defined period of time and are focused on the client’s return on investment.

Legacy: An injection of expertise from an interim executive can have a lasting and hugely positive impact across the entire organisation, operationally, economically and culturally.

Reassurance: The ability to be well-referenced is key to being consistently employed as an interim executive. This ensures that the interim will have high motivation and output.

Global reach: The majority of our interim clients are in the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, France and the U.K. We also have clients who engage interim executives for international assignments Asia/Pacific, the Middle East, and North America.

Our Process

We have a robust and highly efficient process for sourcing and placing interim executives:

  1. Enquiry: A prompt response and assessment of the client’s needs to determine whether an interim executive is the best solution
  2. Briefing: A detailed conversation to fully understand the business and context; outline objectives, timelines and budget as well as required candidate competencies
  3. Search: Engage with our network of interim executives to source candidates with the right level of technical ability, sector knowledge and cultural fit
  4. Shortlist: Present a shortlist of 2-3 candidates, with all pertinent details
  5. Client interviews: Client selects candidates to meet and interview
  6. Final selection: Define terms and manage contractual administration

Throughout the assignment, we stay in regular contact with the interim executive and the client to monitor progress and performance. When the assignment draws to a close, we meet with both the client and the interim executive to ensure a smooth handover and transfer of knowledge.
