Fractional Chief Operating Officer


A “fractional COO” typically refers to a COO who serves multiple companies on a part-time or limited basis rather than a full-time, dedicated position for one company. This can be beneficial for startups or small businesses that need the expertise of a COO but can’t afford or don’t need one full-time

Our Approach

1 Initial Assessment

Needs Analysis

Before diving in, we’ll assess the operational pain points your company is currently experiencing. This could involve interviews with key stakeholders, surveying staff, and reviewing current operational processes.

Operational Review

A deep dive into your company’s operations to identify inefficiencies, bottlenecks, and areas for improvement. This will include looking at your current workflows, systems, team dynamics, and organizational structure.

Strategic Alignment

Ensuring that the operational strategies align with the company’s larger business goals and vision.

2 Planning and Strategy Development

Operational Blueprint

Based on the assessment, we will develop a roadmap of changes, new implementations, and processes. This blueprint serves as a guide for all the improvements we suggest.

Resource Allocation

Determining what resources (technology, manpower, time, and financial) will be required for the changes and how they’ll be allocated.

KPI Development

Setting key performance indicators (KPIs) that will help monitor the success and impact of the implemented changes.

3 Implementation

Change Management

Introducing and managing changes in a way that minimizes disruption and resistance. This might involve training sessions, workshops, and regular communication updates to ensure everyone is on board.

Pilot Programs

For significant changes, pilot programs can be launched to test the new systems or processes in a controlled environment before a company-wide rollout.

Iterative Process

As changes are made, regular feedback loops will be established to identify any issues or further improvements. This ensures that adjustments can be made in real-time to better fit the company’s needs.

4 Ongoing Support and Review

Regular Check-ins

Periodic meetings with key stakeholders to discuss progress, address concerns, and refine strategy as needed.

Performance Analytics

Monitoring the previously set KPIs and analyzing the data to determine the success of the operational changes.

Continual Improvement

The business world and its challenges are ever-evolving. Regular reviews will ensure that operational strategies are still aligned with the company’s goals and adjust if necessary.

5 Exit or Transition (if applicable)

This approach emphasizes a thorough understanding of the company’s current state, a strategic vision for operational excellence, and a commitment to driving meaningful change.
Knowledge Transfer

Ensuring that once the fractional COO’s term is ending, there’s a smooth transition of knowledge to the in-house team.


All processes, changes, and strategies implemented will be thoroughly documented for the company’s future reference.

Feedback Loop

A final round of feedback to understand what went well, what could be improved, and any recommendations for the future.
