Frequently Asked Questions

What does a Fractional CTO do?

A Fractional Chief Technology Officer (CTO) is a part-time or outsourced technology executive who provides strategic technology leadership and guidance to organizations that don’t require a full-time CTO.

Their responsibilities may include overseeing the organization’s technology strategy, managing technology-related budgets and investments, evaluating and implementing new technologies, and ensuring that the organization’s technology infrastructure is aligned with its business goals and objectives.

Fractional CTOs work with organizations on a flexible basis, providing as much or as little support as needed, and are typically engaged to help organizations that are growing rapidly or undergoing significant technological change. They can be a cost-effective solution for smaller organizations that cannot afford a full-time CTO, but still need high-level technology expertise and leadership.

Why should I hire a Fractional CTO?

Hiring a Fractional Chief Technology Officer (CTO) offers several benefits to your organization, including:

  • Cost-effectiveness: Our Fractional CTOs provide the necessary technology leadership and guidance without the expense of hiring a full-time CTO. This can be particularly beneficial for smaller organizations that may not have the budget to support a full-time executive.
  • Expertise: Our Fractional CTOs have extensive experience in technology leadership roles and can bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to your organization. They can help you evaluate new technologies, develop technology strategies, and ensure that your technology infrastructure is aligned with your business goals.
  • Flexibility: Our Fractional CTOs work on a part-time or outsourced basis, which means that you can engage them for as much or as little support as needed. This can be particularly beneficial for organizations that are going through a period of rapid growth or technological change.
  • Objectivity: Our Fractional CTOs offer an objective perspective on your organization’s technology infrastructure and strategy. This can be particularly helpful in identifying areas for improvement and ensuring that your technology investments are aligned with your business goals.

Overall, hiring a Fractional CTO can help your organization develop and implement a strategic technology plan that supports your business goals and objectives.
