That is the opinion of Sue Smith, partner at Boyden, who said that all businesses can benefit from the input of these types of managers, whether they are start-up firms or otherwise.
One type of organisation that could benefit from interim managers is an organisation where the founders or the people have got the ideas and the business is taking off - but has outgrown the founders.
Equally, it could be that a family has started a business and they need to bring in someone who can perhaps guide that business through to the next stage.
"So, you are bringing in people who have been there and done it before to actually guide, manage and advise," Ms Smith noted.
An interim manager can be responsible for the operational aspects of a business and deliver the finance function, IT or customer service side, but can also come in and act as an operational consultant, she added.
"The individual comes in with their own background and knowledge, and listens to and spends time with the business - and then will advise on good, broad generalist business skills," the expert noted.
