Bridging the Gaps in Management Resources
New Straits Times, Friday, December 17, 2010
COMPANIES are normally started to fill a void that has yet to be serviced, or an opportunity to provide a service differently. Themis Consulting fits into that niche of providing necessary but hard-to-find services for interim management for a certain level of qualification.
“Themis Consulting was established in 2002 and we provide executive interim management services to fulfill organizations’ needs for highly qualified professionals to bridge their temporary gaps in senior management resources,” says Dr Wong Siaw Ming, founder of Themis.
“In essence, this refers to secondment of highly qualified senior professionals to fulfill specific roles in the client organization for a pre-determined length of time. The unique advantage of this arrangement is the injection of objectivity, experiences and skills from the best talents without committing long term investments.”
For many of us, a corporation runs itself through its own people—of which there seems to be a never-ending supply from a personal mill. But in fact, the need for senior management on short notice cannot always be fulfilled by internal staff—whether it is because they are under-qualified and inexperienced, or because there is just not enough people at that qualification level.
