Placing Interim or Project Managers

Interim and Project ManagersThere are many organisations offering interim management and it is important to stress the additional value add of our product offering. Like others, we can provide individuals possessing the experience, qualifications and talent to meet your needs. We compliment the experience and skills of our candidates by adding a structured implementation plan and definition of deliverables for the potential assignment.

To do this we apply Lexion's wealth of experience and deep knowledge of successful change management, implementation and performance improvement. This gives the assignment more focused cutting edge and consequently better value for money. In this way, the goals and deliverables of the assignment are defined up front and can be combined or compared with a prospective client’s expectations and needs. Driving improvement in Acute Trusts and PCT's requires a structured approach and methodology and Lexion apply a process-led Lean approach.

Financial recovery and balance have become key issues in this sector. The delivery of Cost Improvement Plans (CIP's) and continuous improvement initiatives aimed at ‘more for less’ have become central to sustaining ongoing financial balance when tariffs, budgets and targets are tightening year on year. The skills necessary to achieve this are scarce and may not be needed all the time. The skills and experience gap within Trusts and PCT's can be filled by drawing upon senior level interims with a proven track record of realising cost, service and quality improvements.

Health organisations have over a number of years squeezed cost out, often or not based on a dictate rather than as a result of efficiency or elimination of waste. We can compliment the organisation's skills with interims that can identify and realise latent cost reduction potentials that can incrementally or radically impact cost effectiveness. Typically work streams could include:

  • Identifying inefficiency and cost opportunity across the organisation
  • Designing detailed action plans and associated business cases
  • Mobilising and delivering implementation success
  • Developing and implementing Cost Improvement Plans
  • Resourcing work streams that contribute to Foundation Status
  • Length of stay, waiting list reduction and patient throughput increase
  • Specifically cost, efficiency and service improvements in:  Theatres, Nursing, Pathology, Radiology, A&E, Outpatients Facilities, Estates, Health Records, Admin. & Clerical
