What We Do

What We Do

People | Process | Technology

As our clients grow they often encounter operational challenges that they are looking to overcome:

  • People unsure of their role in the organization

  • Job descriptions written on post-it notes

  • Reoccurring quality issues

  • Challenges with supply-chain

  • Unneeded escalations

This is where our Fractional Chief Operations Officer  (COO) services can help.  We take the pressure off of the executive team and work with your staff to build a robust plan to overcome key challenges your organization is facing.  Unlike other consulting firms we are focused on starting where you are and improving performance over time.  

What is a COO?

A Chief Operations Officer (COO) is responsible for daily operations of the company and routinely reports to the CEO.

The CEO is the visionary and creative in the business, while the COO is intended to be the integrator who tactically makes the vision of the CEO come to life.


  • The CEO focuses on the growth of the business.

  • The COO is responsible for making sure that the plans, people, processes, and projects are in alignment with the mission and values of the business.


A COO will allow the executive team to spend more time on the business and less time on the 'busyness."

Additionally, here is a YouTube video that explains what a COO is and how having a COO can help your company grow.
