Interim Management Lyon and the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region

Interim management assignment in Lyon and the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region

Lyon and its region is the second largest industrial employment area in France. WAYDEN is present in the area and regularly carries out interim management assignments in Lyon and Grenoble. The region is especially dynamic in economic terms, and one that we know well since one of our long-standing partners is a native Lyonnais.

One of our clients, a European leader in e-commerce, recently experienced a management crisis at one of its two logistics sites based in the Lyon region and serving the whole of southern France. In less than a week, we deployed an interim manager and a WAYDEN associate director to straighten out governance for six months.

In the Grenoble area, WAYDEN put in place a programme director to design and manage a major international programme for a local transport company.

Using an interim manager in Lyon: what is involved?

Is your company currently facing a major challenge that appears insurmountable using internal resources alone? Calling on the expertise of an interim manager can be a powerful lever for successfully seeing through a crucial phase.

Our interim managers have 15 to 25 years’ experience in top-level positions and are experienced in managing complex, high-stake projects. Thanks to this exceptional know-how, combined with unique human and managerial skills and qualities, they will be able to respond to all the challenges you are currently facing.

They can intervene to save your organisation when an unusual event or situation threatens its survival (crisis management, restructuring, merger and acquisition, decline in activity, etc.). They will also be able to initiate a major change process, vital to the survival of your company (performance improvement, international development, organisational, commercial, cultural or managerial transformation, etc.).

They are also able to respond to an emergency situation, and can replace at a moment’s notice a director, manager or other key employee whose position has been left vacant.

The Lyon market is particularly competitive, with a plethora of talent and companies. The expertise of an interim manager will also be very beneficial in helping you stand out in this market and strengthening your competitive edge. Our interim managers are also able to guide you if you are relocating your company to Lyon, or if you wish to open a subsidiary or industrial site there.

Operational from the moment they arrive in your organisation in the Lyon region, these high-level experts will draw up a relevant action plan, the implementation of which they will rigorously monitor using a methodology geared towards obtaining measurable and concrete results.
