Fractional CRO Engagements Support the Execution of the Findings of the Scale Audit


Fractional CRO Engagements


The Goal


1. $$$: To make the recommendations from the Scale Audit turn into sustainable ARR growth, by successfully exiting each growth milestone (detailed above).

YES, to be crystal clear, we expect to see revenue impact & the quicker the better


2. Sustainability: However, the revenue impact needs to be sustainable and repeatable.

NO, to be crystal clear, it's not a success to us if we add $5M in ARR, at a cost of $25M.



How do we do it?



1. Firstly, "we" (you, your team and us) do "it" (everything recommended in the Scale Audit) together. We are a team. You lead, but we are your guide, and we are also in the weeds with you when it makes sense. (which is oftentimes, a lot!)


2. We follow the guidance of the Scale Audit 


3. But we maintain a fleet of foot that allows us to be opportunistic and veer off script where the opportunity arises and is aligned with the mission.


4. We architect and utilise tooling across the GTM & wider org that instruments transparency and a common language across the company, and supports your ability to scale efficiently and predictably.


5. We maintain a myopic focus on $ARR growth


YES, this does require calls with customers, & being active in the executive leadership meetings, for example.

NO, it doesn't mean we have to lead these meetings. You lead, we (proactively) guide.
