A COO is a person in an organization that carries out the vision and strategies of the CEO. It’s their job to ensure that various people execute tasks and projects to help grow the business. They have an important role within any company, regardless of its size.
The trouble is, many firms don’t feel they need a COO. As a result, a CEO’s visions and expectations can differ from what happens in reality. A CEO will have less time devising new pathways for their companies to follow. As you can imagine, that can lead to stagnant growth. And, in severe cases, a loss of the market share due to a lack of innovation.
Companies grow faster and bigger when they have a COO in the management team. One reason why some firms don’t have a COO is down to cost. They feel that they can’t justify the expense of hiring a COO on a permanent basis. They also believe the money is better spent elsewhere in the business.
So, how can such companies get around that problem? One option and an innovative one at that is to use a COO on demand. And that’s the service 4sight Management Solutions offers!
