IRVINE, Calif., April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What is keeping your CEO up late at night? Where are the holes in your company's strategic planning, operations, product line, finances and people that are holding it back from reaching its full potential? Launched this month, a new and free 40-question Snapshot tool from Cerius Interim Executive Solutions (www.ceriusinterim.com) – the nation's leading, interim executive management solutions provider – offers answers.
"The Snapshot encapsulated how much trouble things can cause if I don't address them now," noted Richard Balzer, CEO of IntelesysOne, a solutions provider for business technology needs. Balzer was one of the first CEOs to use the test to analyze the priority trouble spots in his organization.
Taking only 15 minutes to complete and without costly consultant fees, Cerius' online, confidential Snapshot allows companies to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in today's market and identify areas for improvement to both the bottom line and growth potential.
"In our daily conversations with CEOs of midmarket businesses, we are seeing a shift from a focus on survival strategies to growth and strategic planning, which will next be followed by new hires," said Pamela Wasley, CEO of Cerius Interim Executive Solutions. "We identified the need for an outside, neutral perspective on how businesses are performing today and what areas need strengthening to lead the future – both key areas to address before bringing on additional risk with new recruits on the executive or other levels. With the Snapshot, we wanted to provide an instant view of performance gaps based on targeted questions that help executives take a hard look at their businesses versus industry standards and strategize plans for 2012 and beyond."
Cerius offers an alternative to lengthy and costly, traditional full-time executive recruitment and contracting with consultants. The interim executive is brought on for a typical three-to-six month duration to strategize and execute plans, fill critical gaps in management teams, manage complex projects and deal with crises. Cerius places VP and C-suite-level professionals in interim roles at midmarket businesses spanning technology, medical device, manufacturing and business services.
