2017 Annual Interim Management Survey Results

Watermark is pleased to present the results of our seventh annual Australian Interim Management Survey.

Since our last report, we’ve seen some fascinating changes in the growth of the market, linked closely to the changing nature of the Australian workforce and in line with the more developed economies of the US and Europe.

In our most extensive survey to date, we’ve collated the data from close to 500 respondents from a wide range of Interim Executives.
