This makes it all the more important to react quickly to a vacancy at this interface by staffing it with an interim manager, because this solution provides the necessary time for a reflected personnel selection and promises in this transition a successful continuation of purchasing in line with the corporate strategy.
It is the core competence of an interim manager in Purchasing to step in and take over the day-to-day business of a company promptly and without any training. He or she is trained to obtain an overview, drive goal-oriented processes, to support management as a partner and to contribute his or her share to the success of the company. Interim Purchasing Managers find possible weak points in processes or in contractual conditions and are able to eliminate them thanks to their technical and analytical competence.
Using their expertise in Purchasing, they create efficient structures: They negotiate and optimize delivery conditions and prices and always keep an eye on supplier management. In the area of Quality Management, they analyse all services, develop ideas for potential savings, reduce material costs and optimize inventories.
