    High Technology

Information technology, telecommunications, software and high-tech companies face a variety of challenges. Whether they manufacture products or provide services, these companies operate in a dynamic market. They generally face very high competitive pressure, which is caused by ongoing globalization, high volatility of demand, increasing complexity in business and customer´s exspectations of entitlement.

The management and executives of these companies are challenged and confronted with the following problems for sustainable business success:

  • Definition of a value chain to be able to survive in global competition
  • Growth in both emerging and mature markets
  • Mergers, acquisitions and several types of consolidation in mature markets
  • Customer-focused solutions and products
  • Business models, organizations and cost structures, changing innovations in the Eco System

The experienced partners of Executive Interim Partners support information technology, software and high-tech companies with their competencies, especially in the following tasks as interim managers and consultants:

  • Implementation of strategies to increase profitability (e.g. internationalization, expansion/focusing and individualization of the product and service portfolio)
  • Program/Project Management Office (PMO) for the consolidation and management of individual projects and the tracking of progress (milestones, resources, KPIs and action plans) in comprehensive programs for profit improvement or restructuring programs
