Answer: We evaluate your company's specific needs, challenges, and goals. Based on this assessment, we match you with a Fractional Executive possessing the right industry experience, skill set, and cultural fit for your organization.

  1. How is a Fractional Executive different from a consultant?

Answer: While both offer expertise, a Fractional Executive often takes on a more hands-on longer term role within the organizations leadership team, driving strategic initiatives, making decisions, leading the sourcing and procurement team and taking responsibility for outcomes just like a full time Chief Procurment Officer. Consultants typically provide advice, recommendations, or solutions but may not be involved in day-to-day implementation.

Answer: Not necessarily. A Fractional Executive can work remotely, on-site, or a combination of both, depending on the company's needs and the nature of the engagement. 

  1. How does the pricing or compensation work for a Fractional Executive?

Answer: Pricing is often flexible and tailored to the engagement's nature and duration. It can be based on an hourly rate, a monthly retainer, or project-based fees. We work closely with clients to determine a pricing structure that aligns with both the business's budget and the value delivered by the Fractional Executive.
