The quality of execution is the focus of attention for both the Partners and Executives of Procadres International, both in terms of preparation as well as of the performance of the assignments by the interim executives
Every assignment is described in a “Brief” drawn up by our Partner together with the Client. This specifies the context and objectives of the assignment, therefore making it possible to select the candidates who will be presented and subsequently to guide discussion on the first elements of the course of action.
Each assignment is the subject of a contract detailing the objectives, planning, and governance as well as the financial terms and conditions.
The initial phase of the assignment is rigorously monitored by our Partner, who checks the rapid, effective integration of the Interim Executive within the Client’s organisation.
Once this step is achieved, a progress report is made by our Partner together with the Client and the Executive to confirm objectives, deliverables and planning and establish the next deadlines.
The assignment is then monitored by the Partner through regular progress reviews with the Client and the Executive. These allow an assessment of the progress made and difficulties encountered to be addressed and the objectives and the schedule to be reconsidered. Cost control is a focal point in our interventions: while the cost of the service is significant, nevertheless it is entirely traceable and the return on investment is measurable though the actual results obtained.
The end of the assignment is especially taken care of by the Partner/Interim Executive team, who, in particular, ensures that the organisation and processes are put in place to guarantee lasting results after the end of the intervention.
