The Australasian Interim Executive Association (AIEA) is a leading professional organisation for interim executives that are recognised for their practical, hands-on skills and a broad understanding of the total business environment.
The original AIEA founders were a group of senior executives who had significant experience in the provision of services as interim managers. One of the first actions was to clearly define what is meant by the term ‘Interim Manager’. The definition chosen is:
'A highly skilled, seasoned manager who is available for assignments of any duration, to either lend specialised expertise to a strategic project or to fill a mission-critical skills gap.'
