“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” Once upon a time, and not all that long ago, lawyers were one or two to a town and less likely to specialize, being responsible for everything Read More
Fractional business management services for small and growing companies and non-profits.
Engagements with CSF start with a one-on-one consultation with Caroline and often another member of our team. We discuss your business or non-profit, short- and long-term goals, and what’s working well and what’s not. Then we talk about how CSF would be able to help either by implementing and automating processes, providing additional and flexible staff to delegate to as needed, or otherwise by providing other custom services.
Every engagement with CSF is completely custom. Sometimes we work on a single project. Mostly we’re engaged on an on-going basis to improve and oversee business processes, provide a business owner the support needed to grow, or simply help move to a goal to completion in a straight line.
We’re not executive assistants or coaches. We aim to become an embedded part of your team that brings top-notch problem-solving skills, quality implementation, and new technology to the table. It’s more like hiring a part-time executive, manager, or MBA to be a member of your team, to delegate tasks to, and to see real results.
All that diverse experience comes together in an ability to suggest a variety of solutions to fit the specific needs of the business, implement those solutions effectively, and manage the people and processes that are in place. We’ve helped streamline businesses so that the owners can focus on the parts they enjoy, knowing that the IT, HR, accounting, and general operations are being watched. We’ve have the skills and connections to respond to real-life business emergencies from a partner being temporarily incapacitated to the quick processes changes required to continue to do business during COVID. We’ve implemented AI processes, hired staff (both skilled and overseas), run functional business processes, and much much more.
Our clients know how to do their jobs well, we help wrap a successful business around them.
