FCDO: Frequently Asked Questions

A Fractional Chief Digital Officer (FCDO) drives digital transformation within an organization. We typically oversee the integration of digital technologies into all aspects of the business, aiming to improve processes, enhance customer experiences, and drive growth. Our FCDOs are often hired when an organization is not ready to hire a full-time CDO due to business or strategic uncertainty, competing business priorities, and other differences of opinion among internal and external stakeholders. Our FCDOs spend 3-6 months working through all outstanding issues, creating digital marketing roadmaps, and providing an organization with the right insights to determine the digital roadmap for the next year.

Companies hire fractional chief digital officers primarily because they want strategic insights and expert digital leadership without the cost of a full-time executive. Secondly, companies hire us when their C-suite executives are presented with competing and often contradictory recommendations on what type of digital initiatives to focus on. Third, companies who hire FCDOs are usually looking for flexibility and scalability in their digital initiatives. That means the C-suite can adjust on the go based on current market conditions and evolving business strategies and needs. Furthermore, our FCDOs are often brought in to lead specific projects and initiatives that require a fresh perspective and innovative out-of-the-box strategies. Lastly, one of the huge benefits of hiring a Fractional Chief Digital Officer is the ability to get objective and unbiased insights that may not always be available with the existing internal resources.

Our Chief Digital Officers bring new perspectives and methodologies to the C-suite table that have been tested rigorously across hundreds of organizations over the last decade. Our FCDOs have worked with some of the most innovative companies in America across two dozen industries. We promote a digital-first approach, mindset, and customer-centric innovations, bringing a culture of experimentation to the table. Our CDOs often start by creating digital innovation labs, where new contained ideas and digital experiments are conducted before large-scale digital investments are made.
