Fractional COO Services

Fractional COO Services for SMBs

Operations is a part of every business, but not every organization can afford a full-time COO. Fractional COO Services can be an excellent option.

Fractional Chief Operating Officers (COOs) can provide companies with a wide range of valuable services to help streamline their operations and increase efficiency. They can assist in designing and implementing effective workflows, creating comprehensive application roadmaps, and managing project execution. Fractional COOs also help with application selection tailored to a company’s specific needs, overseeing cost-effective budgeting practices, and managing vendor relationships. By optimizing expenses, conducting strategic reviews, and managing change, fractional COOs can enhance overall service delivery and operations.

At Valenta, we specialize in providing services to midsized companies and small businesses. We have assisted countless Operations departments, and our Fractional COO service is another way we can help our clients achieve their goals. A Fractional COO can fill a vital role for businesses in the short term or part time over a longer term. Our services help companies execute efficiently, provide mentorship to CEOs, and offload responsibilities, ultimately increasing operational efficiency, improving the bottom line, and boosting customer satisfaction.

  • Experienced executives in the area of Operations
  • Reasonable costs and fees for COO services
  • An approach of continuous improvement for Operations

A Fractional COO can be a superb option for a variety of business scenarios. Situations we have frequently seen, and where we have provided services include :

  • Current leadership is strong operationally or with specific domain expertise but lack strategic thinking and do not have a broad range of experiences to draw upon.
  • Current leadership has strategic vision but cannot be free from day to day requirements. They need qualified Operations leaders to delegate responsibility to.
  • A current operating model has reached capacity and leadership needs to take a step back and level up.
  • There is an immediate COO vacancy that needs to be filled while a longer term leader for the Operations is secured.
  • Current Operations leadership is struggling and needs a qualified and skilled coach and mentor.
  • Current Operations leadership is not up to the task and needs to be replaced.

Defining a Scope of Work and the needs of your Operations and Administration department is always the best first step. We are here to discuss our COO services. After exploration if a match is established, we will identify and define the exact role. During discovery, in addition to scope we can define time frames and the dedicated hours and days required per month. All aspects of our COO engagements can be flexible, customizable, and scalable.

We look forward to assisting your business and Operations and Administration team.
A Fractional COO is an excellent option for SMBs, startups, businesses in transition and growth mode.
