ETM is frequently asked the following questions:1. What qualities should a professional have?
Answer: See Manager Gateway
2. Does ETM only look for first line management professionals?
Answer: ETM mainly only takes on assignments at management level and values professionals who are slightly "overqualified". A typical ETM professional in the final years of regular employment is therefore employed at management level, as sole managing director or as managing director/executive board member with functional responsibility (e.g. CFO). During their time as a professional, the typical ETM professional proves to be an asset, especially during phases of restructuring and reorganisation, modernisation or in complex projects.
3. How old is a typical professional?
Answer: The ETM professional is a leader with an average age of around 50. Professionals aged 60 and above are also acceptable, as long as they can demonstrate several years' experience working as a professional and have a proven track record.
4. How long is a professional employed?
Answer: Usually six months, but sometimes just a few weeks or even a year or more.
5. What's the difference between a professional and a consultant?
Answer: A professional assumes responsibility for implementation at operational level, while a counsellor is more of a doer.
6. Does ETM employ professionals?
Answer: Professionals are freelancers; they sign a service contract with ETM for assignments.
