Management’s Antidote for Turbulent Times; New Book Sheds Light on Emerging Practice of Using Interim Managers in Marketing and Sales


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 28, 2008

What is the little-known secret some CEOs use to keep employment costs down while maintaining growth strategies during uncertain economic conditions? The answer involves the prudent use of interim or on-demand managers within their Marketing and Sales departments, according to the authors of “Leadership On Demand: How Smart CEOs Tap Interim Management to Drive Revenue”.

Although companies today are familiar with using interim executives to fill temporary gaps in HR, IT and Finance departments the new book provides fresh insight and best practices on how to use interim, “just-in-time” talent to impact the revenue engine of their organization–Marketing and Sales.

The authors contend that too many companies have allowed temporary gaps in Marketing and Sales leadership to retard their revenue performance. The gaps occur in three areas: a key management position is vacant for more than a month, a critical set of required skills is missing in the organization, or there’s a shortage of management time to accomplish an important business initiative.

“This topic is one of great importance to our economy and society. The chapters do a good job of identifying the general trends that would lead a company to consider the utilization of an interim manager,” said John Mavers, First Vice President, Washington Mutual Bank.

Through its 14 chapters the book shows CEOs how to identify when interim management should be considered, how to structure an engagement, how to socialize the solution within the organization, how to justify the fee, etc. The book includes interviews from CEO’s, COO’s and Board members who share their experiences and insights about the prudent use of on-demand leaders in small and large organizations.

“Leadership On Demand: How Smart CEOs Tap Interim Management to Drive Revenue” is published by LOD Publishing, LLC and can be ordered from http://www.leadership-on-demand.com or http://www.Amazon.com. The suggested retail price is $ 28.95 plus shipping and handling. The title is available in both paperback and eBook formats.

After the Staff Cuts, Then What? Book Advises CEO’s How to Grow Revenue Despite Steep Reductions of Sales and Marketing Staff


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 16, 2008

For corporate executives feeling like they are up a creek without a paddle because of staff cutbacks and the challenges of a slowing economy, there is a ray of hope–according to the recently published book, “Leadership On Demand: How Smart CEO’s Tap Interim Management to Drive Revenue”.

In a business environment that forces companies to accomplish more with fewer resources, the authors illustrate how the use of interim managers in key sales and marketing positions can make a difference in a short period of time without adding to fixed costs. Today, fixed staffing costs projected forward are scrutinized by banks and other credit organizations.

The book highlights reasons that CEO’s engage interim managers in marketing and sales functions. Senior managers with ideal skill sets, domain expertise, industry contacts, and unbiased objectivity can be brought on board “for a season” to fill a gap or drive a critical initiative–without long-term commitment.

Through its 14 chapters, the book shows CEO’s how to identify when interim management should be considered, how to structure an engagement, how to socialize the solution within the organization, how to justify the fee, etc. The book includes interviews from CEO’s, COO’s and Board members who share their experiences and insights about the prudent use of on-demand leaders in small and large organizations.
