Interim vs. Fractional

Many organizations are learning about the benefits of interim and fractional executive work. At Tandem, we are able to fill either type of role as needed by our clients. 

Fractional:

  • A long-term relationship with no defined end

  • Not typically involved with day-to-day operations or responsible for internal team

  • Acts as a consultative voice to the leadership team

  • Helps with decision making

  • A cost-effective way for startups to gain access to this role 

Interim:

  • A short-term relationship with a defined exit strategy

  • Steps into the day-to-day operations and guides the internal team

  • Is an executive voice to the leadership team 

  • Is a decision maker

  • A cost-effective way for existing organizations to mitigate gaps while looking for permanent team member

In essence, a fractional executive is a part-time long-term strategic partner, while an interim executive is a full-time temporary operational leader.
