The interim management survey 2014 has been open for just over two weeks (half of its time open) and we’re very pleased that with nearly 1,300 surveys completed we are around half way to last year’s total.
The reason why we ask for so many surveys to be completed is because whilst we already have more than enough responses for top-level answers about day rates and general market trends, it is our plan to further segment the data where possible to expose further truths about specific sectors and strata of interim seniority including provider preferences.
To do that, takes numbers, as each time you segment, the statistical significance of the remaining sample declines somewhat. Our top-level statistics have a confidence interval better than +/- 2%. Segmented answers we would like to better +/- 3 or 4% depending on how deeply we dive.
Enough of statistics. If you have completed the survey we really appreciate your time.
If not, we hope you will view it as a ‘good thing to do’ for the interim sector. We produce such a detailed survey for the benefit and use of all interim managers and executives, as well as the wider sector.
What have we found so far?
We are posting teasers as the survey results emerge on a download page which interims can access (you guessed it) at the end of completing the survey. End clients and new interim managers get a free download at the end of completing their sections and Providers get teasers too after their section, once we have a bit more data.
It is safe for interim managers and providers to tell their end clients and new or other interims they know.
Thanks for your support.
