We know that finding a partner who can successfully identify and onboard the right interim talent to achieve your urgent outcomes depends on many factors. Your partner must have a wide, quality network with the right expertise, a proven record of performance and the ability to recruit successfully at speed. So, how do you determine whether the interim agency you have in mind is the right fit?

There's no two ways about it—you need to ask questions, and you need to ask a lot of them. It’s important to focus on the pertinent ones that will help uncover the abilities of an interim consultancy in a way that is meaningful to you and your stakeholders.

For example:

  • How do you identify then evaluate talent for interim placement?
  • Do you have measures in place to ensure your interim talent delivers?
  • What percentage of your clients are repeat buyers?

We've put together a list that we know will go a long way in helping you make the right decision for your interim services. Rather than simply telling you what to ask, we've also shown how Korn Ferry Interim answers each question, so you have a barometer to measure other consultancies against.

Remember, in asking these questions, you're looking for more than an interim services provider; you’re determining an interim strategy partner who can help you plan for future needs and support interim requirements as they arise, rather than as a reactive response. With the right interim strategy partner, interim services can play an important role in driving transformation within your business.
