What is a CTO?

The role of Chief Technology Officer is prevalent in many larger organisations, but is often missing in many smaller (SME) organisations. And whilst it's true that these smaller organisations don't require a full time CTO, the crucial input and direction that a CTO can provide is usually lacking.

The key elements of the Fractional CTO role includes managing roadmaps, setting tasks, deadlines, identifying and managing key technology risks and issues.

Alongside the technology elements I can help ensure the Business Strategy is right, as technology is such a critical part of the business there needs to be a technology voice in all the business strategy discussions.

Why a Fractional CTO?

The key business benefit of a having Fractional CTO is that they provide the same technology expertise and capability of a full-time CTO without the level of salary, benefits, bonus, pensions & stock options that usually come with adding a top level executive.

There are some key scenarios where companies need a fractional CTO, you need a tech strategy and dont have a CTO, your existing technology team needs guidance and oversight, you require more confidence and visibility into what your team are doing, you are launching a new product or company, or you may have lost, or be about to lose an existing CTO.
