For all organizations, little energizes teams more than having a healthy bottom line. It ensures a pervasive sense of security and lets you focus on pursuing the true strategic imperatives of the organization.
Businesses face an unending variety of challenging circumstances: flat or declining revenue, hyper-uncontrolled growth, a disengaged executive/leadership team, changing and challenging economic conditions, a lack of capital to fund operations and growth, technological challenges and even fundamental industry transformation. When facing any or all of these, having a proven and experienced Chief Operating Officer is essential — not only to survive but to thrive in an ever-changing global economy.
A qualified COO is fundamental to any organization to grow both revenue and profits while executing on strategic priorities. The COO leads, aligns, focuses and unifies the many functions operating. The COO is accountable for all of the functional areas of the business and for ensuring they collectively hit the quarterly and annual milestones, targets, all while keeping the P&L on track.
In doing so, the COO supports the CEO an ensures he or she can focus externally on driving top line growth and on securing valuable new relationships, resulting in a stronger organizational presence (and performance) in the marketplace.
