Interim Management Mechanical Engineering

Interim Management – Mechanical Engineering as a solution in challenging times

Mechanical engineering is one of Germany´s leading industries. The broad spectrum of tasks ranges from Research & Development to design and technical support. With its 900,000 employees throughout Germany and 300,000 worldwide, the industry is also geared to be export-oriented.

An exciting industry

Mechanical engineering interacts closely with other segments of industry, and whether developing tooth belts for drive systems or servicing equipment, all tasks are united by forward thinking. New challenges every day, advances in digitalization and global competition – in order to survive in the market- calls for a high degree of flexibility and solution orientation in addition to an in-depth technical understanding. Without these skills, things would get really tough.

Companies with vacant top positions in mechanical engineering can no longer afford to leave these interfaces unmanned for the duration of the recruitment and selection process. It is too important to be able to count on reliable managers with leadership qualities in these key positions. And furthermore, the risk of suffering a slump in sales due to vacancies is just too great. Relying on an interim specialist at this point is a proven strategy for successfully navigating around this potential pitfall.

If the mountain is too high, the equipment is not right

If the mountain is too high, the equipment is not right Interim managers in mechanical engineering are used to thinking in a solution-oriented way. They develop new strategies, have a high affinity for innovation and get directly and constructively involved in the day-to-day running of the company. Equally indispensable is their excellent understanding of digitalization, which is currently confronting the entire mechanical engineering industry with new challenges and will continue to do so in the future.

The digital transformation means that countless jobs will be performed exclusively by machines in the future. In addition, and based on a global comparison study, Germany is considered to be one of the world´s most unattractive production locations due to the high costs of energy and manpower. These challenges are resulting in a shift in the focus of work: with a clear emphasis on Research & Development, programming and technical support.

This makes it all the more relevant to fill vacant top position in this segment on an interim basis so that Mechanical Engineering 4.0 can perform successfully with its processes, and that unnecessary pressure is taken out of the recruitment process.
