Virtual Chief Strategy Officer

Two vital issues that SMEs typically face are i) a lack of marketing and ii) difficulty competing with large companies for top talent. Often this is because private businesses and SMEs don’t think they can afford to have dedicated staff on payroll for strategy and planning.

Does your business have someone to run your annual strategic planning and budgeting process? Or to manage a product line like a General Manager would do, with comprehensive business planning? Or maybe you have someone on board, but need an interim replacement due to a leave of absence, extended medical leave, or parental leave.

Either way, you can get the strategic guidance, on-going support, and flexibility you need by adding a Virtual Chief Strategy Officer (VCSO) from Market Metrics to your team. We can work on a project or interim basis, so you’ll get an experienced expert at a fraction of the price you would pay for a full-time permanent employee.

Our Virtual CSO service can help with any or all of the following:

  • Strategy and planning, include strategy plans, quarterly business reviews, and annual shareholder meetings;
  • Budgeting;
  • Organizational requirements and structure;
  • Product planning and roadmaps;
  • Competitive intelligence;
  • Sales support;
  • New product development; and/or,
  • Special projects.

We’ll work with your management team and support staff — including sales, operations, finance, IT, and admin — to develop a robust corporate strategy and supporting action plan.

After your planning is complete, our strategic management services can help you stay on track with quarterly business reviews.
