When a Fractional CIO Helps

When a Fractional CIO Helps fractured glass
Metaballs Circle
84% of SMEs have two or fewer IT staff, often reporting into a non-technical manager. This complement may not have the time, knowledge or experience to deliver the IT strategic, technical guidance and operational oversight that all modern businesses need.
If any of this seems familiar, it could be time to consider Mindfield's Fractional CIO program

  • Weariness from failed initiatives, increasing operational costs and a perception of IT as low value

  • Alignment gaps between IT and the business resulting in poor lackluster results and stakeholder disatisfaction

  • Failure to meet regulatory or contractual requirements

  • IT limiting innovation and required agility

  • Incidents such as data loss or project failure

  • Limited IT responsiveness or reported quality of service problems

  • Hidden or shadow IT spending


Why Mindfield for Fractional CIO

This is where Mindfield’s Fractional CIO Program can help. We offer a modern hybrid approach to IT leadership. You will gain access to an experienced and certified IT leader, and a team they know, with years of experience defining and leading strategic tech initiatives, large-scale system implementations, and directly managing IT operations, helpdesk, information security, software development, and business intelligence. This player coach will work with you to fill whatever gaps you may have. If you need someone to align thez board, or mix it up with the techs, you’ll have a dependable and dedicated resource standing by.

Process to Engaging a Fractional CIO

Our contract process is quick and pain-free, the engagement starts without undue delay, and the scope is as flexible as you need it to be.

Here are the basics: you decide the level of support you’re interested in, which is all we need to get a resource assigned, and then you work with that resource to define the scope, targets and deliverables. We have plenty of ideas and templates to get started, so no need to reinvent the wheel, but they can all be customized to your specific needs.

Challenge

Our client, a billion-dollar startup based in Vancouver, Canada, had a gap in IT leadership that needed filling. The short story was they needed to scale, and the IT department was not prepared.

Approach

  • Mindfield worked with the organization for over a year.
  • We directly managed IT vendors and helped recruit and onboard an internal IT team.
  • IT governance processes were implemented to improve decision-making.
  • A shared IT services model was established for consistent IT touchpoints.
  • Strategic direction and solution advisory were provided to senior leadership and internal stakeholders.
  • Mindfield directly implemented or managed multiple systems, integrations, and IT projects.

Result

Most importantly, for that year, we became the friendly face of IT leadership for end-users, engendering trust and confidence in the IT department and setting them on a path to success.
