Fractional C-Level Executives can be a good option for a variety of business scenarios. Some of the situations we have frequently seen, and where we have provided services include:
Fractional C-Level services can be an excellent solution for many businesses. Fast results can be achieved when leveraging them. Fractional C-Level executives will be the antithesis to the “we have always done it this way approach”. They can help the organizations they serve take a blank sheet approach. Fractional C-Level executives also come with proven leadership skills. While technical skills are a must, mature leadership is more important than technical knowledge to actually move organizations. New organizations sometimes don’t know what they don’t know, outside skills and leadership can bridge the gap. Besides the many benefits of a fresh approach, Fractional C-Level executives can help companies to scale quickly. When companies are in rapid growth mode it can be hard to keep up. Fractional leadership can also assist companies who are moving in the opposite direction. Besides offering cost savings, they can help companies make the right downscaling decisions with the least amount of damaging impact on a company.

There are many benefits of bringing on board Fractional C-Level Executives to assist a business. Some of those benefits include the following :
At Valenta all our services engagements typically run month to month and are able to be cancelled with 30 days’ notice. When it comes to Fractional Executive engagements, we typically look to start with a minimum three month engagement. All of our services are confidential, and we cover them with NDA agreements. Our engagements typically pay for themselves, and we can discuss and model an ROI upfront. Any ROI can be tied to a specific project to be undertaken or special initiative. An ROI can also be achieved by the simple costs savings generated by filling a position fractionally.
Defining a Scope of Work is always the best first step. We can discuss our services with your business, and once a match is established, we can define the exact role that needs to be filled. During discovery in addition to scope we can define time frame and the dedicated hours and days required per month. All aspects of our engagements can be flexible, customizable, and scalable.
Fractional executives are an excellent option for SMBs, startups, businesses in transition and growth mode plus many others.
