Important and Significant Work

Osborne Interim Management has deep experience and expertise in the not-for-profit and social enterprise sectors. We deliver solutions on a flexible contract basis when organizations are experiencing challenges, working through transitions, embracing rapid growth, or wanting to avoid the burdens of full-time employees. We also offer team assignments where a collection of Osborne experts work together to provide a full suite of required services.

We can fill gaps where specific skills are lacking, can bring specialized experience to assignments, and can deliver valuable leadership to an organization. Our Principals and Senior Advisors are accountable for their work, produce tangible results and leave the organization once the issue has been resolved, the transition has been completed or the project is completed. Team assignments can be project based or last for as long as your organization desires.
