Sometimes the owner needs to have someone take control of the organization for a short period of time to initiate change, or to provide strong guidance in making decisions. The Interim CEO enters the company with a fresh eye and enjoys complete objectivity. He/She has no political agenda or other obligations to color the decision-making process. However, an interim CEO can allow unpopular, necessary steps of action to happen in order to advance the company. At the end of the engagement, the owner is able to assume control of the company without blame for the Interim CEOs decisions.
