Academies - an opportunity for interim managers?

The last couple of years have been hard for interim managers, but niche opportunities still exist. One potential niche seems to be developing in the education sector with Academy schools.

The new government is attempting to start its main reforms early in the parliamentary cycle.  This gets the bad news over early in time for the electorate to get used to the happier feelings generated by the recovery well before the next election. 

Haste in the public sector means consultation is limited and this leads to the possibility of producing administrative problems.  One of these administrative problem areas might produce some interesting opportunities that might be subtly different in various parts of England and Wales.
