In today's competitive business landscape, having a fractional COO can give CEOs the peace of mind they need without putting too much financial strain on the company. A fractional COO is a business professional with extensive experience who is willing to work on a temporary, part-time basis for an hourly rate that would normally be equivalent to hiring someone full time. This type of arrangement can bring your team together and address every challenge in the most cost-effective way possible. If you're considering hiring a fractional operations director, but you're not sure which position is a high-priority, let's discuss it in a free consultation call.
Generally speaking, a good fractional operations manager should be able to see the big picture and summarize it in practical steps and executable strategies. By bringing in an independent consultant to serve as chief operating officer on a fractional basis, you can negotiate a contract with a clearly defined project scope. This is an excellent alternative to hiring a full-time salaried operations manager and immediately integrating them into the team without knowing what the dynamic will be like between the CEO and the team. The advantage of a fractional COO is their ability to share their years of experience and guide growing companies like yours to scale securely and predictably.
Leveraging a fractional COO to expand your team and train it is one of the best ways to streamline your hiring process and maintain the standard within your agency. This type of arrangement can help manage the small “mosquitoes” that consume you so that you can focus on what you do best: growing your business. Small but powerful and growing companies looking to scale intelligently can benefit from hiring a fractional COO. By having this type of professional on board, you can break through the ceiling and reach new heights in your business.
