Does Your Business Need Operational Support?
There are lots of great companies out there - yours might be one of them! Continuing to grow your business means you need to be strong in three areas:
Sales & Marketing - to bring in the customers,
Finance - to ensure you collect and manage your money and
Operations - to ensure you have the systems in place to deliver on what you sold.
Great job getting to this point! Through growth, you’ve created different challenges:
How much revenue is your organization able to produce?
Will you achieve your sales target for the year?
What is your business’ capacity limit, and when will you reach it?
How much money and how many resources does it take to sustain your revenue objective(s)?
Are your prices set correctly, or with every sale, are you leaving money on the table?
How many more sales do you need to get close to hitting your annual revenue target?
Do the current marketing activities deliver enough leads to help the sales team achieve the revenue objective?
Is your tech stack the right and best one for you as well as being scalable?
Are systems in place to retain your clients and increase their average lifetime value to the business?
Is your team clear on their roles and responsibilities?
Do you have sufficient capacity for growth?
Do you have a virtual bench for your growing business?
Do any of these questions sound familiar?
To hit your targets, you need someone to help grow your team and scale your business. Someone who can take the vision out of your head and help make it a reality, turn chaos into order.
What are some of the signs that you need Operational Support?
Deep down you know you spend too much time working in your business and not on your business.
In your company, you feel frustrated and you struggle every day with the little things.
You know you need to strengthen and solidify your leadership team.
Your company is growing, and you need help with the chaos that exists because of this growth.
You are tired or burnt out and you can’t see how to remove yourself from the day to day operations.
Capable Operation Support Teams take the time to understand business activities and its role in the industry. This understanding informs critical strategic choices that are often key drivers of business growth.
However, growing businesses don’t always need a full-time COO or Operations person to help.
What are you searching for? What, as the CEO, would bring tremendous value to you?
ECONOMIZING: The cost pressure associated with a full-time COO/Operations is eased by paying for a fractional role so the organization will avoid the recruiting and training expenses as well as the corresponding salary. This allows for access to knowledgeable people to help the business grow.
ACCESSIBILITY: Since time is valuable, another cost-saver is the immediacy of hiring a fractional Operations person. In situations where a company realizes they have a need and does not immediately start the search process, bringing in a part-time person provides immediate help.
FLEXIBILITY: To provide greater flexibility within the position, recruiting only for what you need, provides an operational option “a la carte” that many businesses appreciate.
OPPORTUNITY: Businesses looking to recruit a full-time COO/Operations Lead can begin by recruiting a part-time person to make the transition easier for their employees.
To do this, do you need:
A CONSULTANT: To lead a particular strategic imperative, such as a restructuring, a significant organizational change, or a proposed rapid expansion.
AN ADVISOR: In order to mentor a young or inexperienced CEO (often a founder). A rapidly growing entrepreneurial company should pursue an industry veteran who can build both the CEO and the emerging business with seasoning, wisdom, and a rich network.
AN INTEGRATOR: Often, the CEO is simply the kind of person that works best with a partner.
If any of these things sound familiar, you are in luck - that is what we do.
