In India, as across the globe, interim management is less familiar than consultancy work. Sanjay Dwivedi and Ram Rao, two professionals who take on interim assignments in India, are o.k. with that.
Their firm’s Synergy division provides both consulting and interim management services, not unlike many executives who don’t rigidly define themselves as one or the other. Although the engagements involve different levels of involvement, many of the required skills are shared.
“At the end of the day, it’s what the client wants,” according to Dwivedi.
