Industry Standard of Success

Defining the core competencies of a successful Interim Manager is a difficult subject, not least because of the variety of functional roles and levels of responsibility that Interims cover. In an important first for the industry, the API has undertaken academically sound and statistically robust research, in conjunction with Saville Consulting, a leading international psychometric and assessment business, to determine the benchmark competencies and aptitudes of a successful Interim Manager.

Saville Consulting has completed a thorough competency and aptitude based validation study with access to over 1200 Interim Managers in the UK. The results have been rigorously analysed to produce an industry-specific model of core behaviours and competencies, objectively highlighting, for the first time, the key drivers of Interim Management success.

Behavioural styles and aptitude data have been collected from over 300 senior interim managers in combination with performance criteria provided by a manager, peer or colleague. This data provides extremely robust analysis.

The research has allowed us to create a benchmarked competency model that highlights the key drivers of interim success and how interims as a group differ in behavioural and aptitude terms from a large benchmark group of permanent executives.

A synopsis of the research can be found by clicking here but the key findings are as follows:-

Overall interims outperformed other senior professionals and managers on a measure of analytical aptitude, which is a broad measure of intellectual agility. This higher aptitude performance was most pronounced in the area of verbal ability. Across the board, interims outperformed senior professionals, irrespective of job level.

The Importance of this research for Interim Managers:

The results of the validation and job profiling exercise have unearthed a clear performance model that predicts to a large degree an interim managers performance potential.

As a result the Saville Consulting Interim Manager report allows existing or potential interims to measure their competency strengths and compare these styles to those of other interims as well as a larger group of professionals and senior managers. It also allows Interim Managers to make an informed decision as to personal development opportunities for their career progression, which they can match with Open University development modules (see matrix of modules under CPD).
