Ready to scale your business with sanity and focus?
You've successfully launched your business and your growing, you've grown. Daily operations are full steam ahead and your busy delivering to your customers. Despite the exciting growth, your noticing that systems and processes that you initially launched with are now longer keeping up or are no longer robust or technologically advanced to keep up.
You could bring in a Fractional COO to work on an organization-wide implementation project. Or, like many companies are now doing, you can have a F-COO work on a retainer, providing leadership and direction to functional areas of the company so you can work on the broader vision for your business.
What is a Fractional COO?
A fractional Chief Operating Officer (COO) is a professional who provides part-time or temporary leadership and strategic guidance to a company in the role of a COO. Unlike a full-time COO, a fractional COO works on a contract or consulting basis, typically dedicating a fraction of their time to the organization.
They bring their expertise, experience, and a fresh perspective to help businesses improve their operations, streamline processes, and drive growth.
Fractional COOs are often engaged by small and mid-sized companies that may not have the resources or need for a full-time executive but still require strategic operational support.
Why use a Fractional COO?
Utilizing a fractional COO can offer several benefits to a company.
First, it provides access to high-level executive talent at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time COO. This cost-effectiveness makes it an attractive option for businesses with limited budgets.
Second, a fractional COO brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from working with various organizations across different industries. They can provide valuable insights and best practices to enhance operational efficiency, optimize resource allocation, and implement effective strategies.
Last, fractional COOs offer flexibility, as they can adjust their level of involvement based on the company's changing needs, allowing businesses to scale their operations without the commitment of a permanent executive position
When should I engage a Fractional COO?
If you’re experiencing any of the following situations – it’s time to consider hiring a fractional COO. Someone who can give your business high-level project management and organization, quarterly strategic mapping, and be your right-hand team member to strategically plan.
You find that your time is spent managing your team and not moving the needle in your business forward.
You’re struggling with managing too many administrative tasks, taking away from time to grow your business and continue client outreach.
You want to expand your team but need help to logistically plan a successful hire.
You feel overwhelmed with the daily tasks that you can’t fathom how to reach the next level in your business.
You’re consumed with the churn of work that the client experience is being affected.
I have an extensive background in business leadership and operations ranging from the financial technology sector where I was Vice President of IT Managed services to General Manger delivering home care for seniors. I am passionate about building and maintaining relationships, process improvement, and collaboration, all with an eye for balancing strategic planning with operational effectiveness. I take pride in helping individuals and organizations tap into their own abilities, empowering them to operate at their full potential by analyzing data, identifying inefficiencies, and developing SOPs to execute both short and long-term goals.
As a fractional COO I “get into the weeds” of an organization allowing visionary leaders to focus on the big picture of growth and impact. By systemizing the day-to-day leaders can produce the results expected of them and their teams, all while creating alignment between strategy, operations, culture, and vision.
