The CEO’s Secret Weapon
Recently, we conducted a survey to determine the awareness and adoption of the Office of the CEO. Behind every successful CEO, there is a back stage crew or support team. This team can take many forms and will change over time as the business grows.
When asked the question "who makes up this team" the typical response includes an Executive Assistant, Public Relations Representative and Human Resources Specialist. A successful CEO also needs a strong leadership team that is responsible for strategy, product, marketing, sales and customer success. These are all important roles to building a successful business but a critical role is usually omitted.
It is our assertion that a Chief of Staff and Business Operations leader can have a transformative impact on the success of a CEO and and their business. As with the Wizard of Oz, the Chief of Staff (BizOps Lead) behind the curtain will make the CEO more effective and always look good. A strong Office of the CEO manages the business so that the CEO can build the business. It is the CEO's secret weapon!
The OCEO Business Operations foundation is the byproduct of 100's of business reviews in front of a C-level audience. During these reviews, every plan and key performance indicator of the business was reviewed, discussed and defended. The establishment of the OCEO system is difficult to create from scratch. We have the tools, templates, and experience to lead your organization through the process. The system can be applied to businesses of all sizes, industries and stages of growth. Engaging with the OCEO team is straightforward and can be implemented quickly and cost effectively.
