What Challenges Are You Facing?
Fractional COO Services
Many SMBs and growing enterprises don’t have a chief operating officer to oversee daily operations. But they may be the key that unlocks business growth.
You know your business better than anyone, but a COO provides a fresh outlook and insider knowledge on how to run a business. You can trust them to come up with strategic ideas while you focus on reaching your company’s core vision and long-term goals.
An outsourced COO will benefit your organization because you’ll have the insight of a professional who remains impartial to the inner workings of your business.
What is the Impact of a Fractional COO on Your Business?
A fractional COO is essentially an outsourced professional who serves as your chief operating officer. They may come in once a week, once a month, or any level of frequency that you need them for strategic planning, process improvement, and other operations-related projects.
By working with a fractional COO, you’re adding an outside perspective to your team and letting their fresh insights innovate your business strategy. You also don’t have to worry about the costs of having a full-time employee because they’re a contracted resource.
You only pay for what you need.
Invest in an outsourced COO when you’re a start-up or a growing company that’s redefining your processes and strategies, or when your business models seem stagnant.
What are a Fractional COO’s Areas of Expertise?
A fractional COO takes care of all operational matters to lighten your load and help you focus on achieving your long-term business goals.
These are the different areas of expertise that our outsourced COOs handle:
- Operational Assessment: Reviewing business operations to improve operational efficiency
- Strategic Planning: Creating a feasible plan and taking the necessary steps for implementation
- Process Improvement: Fine-tuning your operational processes and procedures
- Supply Chain Management: Refining your logistic channels and inventory investments
- Organizational Development: Maximizing your resources for a stable future
- Change Management: Assisting you through changes in the organizational structure
- Risk Management: Identifying and mitigating threats to earnings and capital
- KPI & Metric Reporting: Identifying and assessing the measurements for performance
- Exit Planning: Developing a long-term vision for a clean exit
Our COO consultants can also help you improve your financial performance, sales and marketing strategy, and technology and tools. Our meticulous team fills in the gaps that are hindering you from success.
How Does a Fractional COO Help You Achieve a Culture of Success?
Our part-time COOs have their eyes set on employee engagement, operational efficiency, and profitability. They do this by aligning business goals and organizational processes, rearranging operational priorities, and recommending concrete steps to meet your goals and priorities.
Keep in mind, however, that the road to seamless operations isn’t built overnight.
A dependable COO starts by gaining a deep understanding of your goals and processes. From there, the senior operations leadership must identify your strengths, opportunities, and areas for improvement. Then, that’s when they start suggesting changes that enable you to innovate, perform better, and bring in more revenue.
Focused Energy’s virtual COOs deliver transformative results throughout your Crawl-Walk-Run journey:
- Crawl: Making observations and assessments
- Walk: Identifying areas for improvement
- Run: Implementing changes for continuous improvement
We apply that culture in organization alignment, employee engagement, contingency planning, mission and goal setting, leadership planning, and process improvement.
