How It Works

1. Intake

Understanding the challenges and goals
Our initial step involves gaining a deep understanding of your specific challenges and growth goals. We engage in a detailed discussion to identify which challenges are most suited for Fractional Leader intervention.

2. Matching

Finding the suitable Fractional Leader for specific need
With a clear grasp of your needs and objectives, we initiate the matching process. You’ll have the opportunity to review profiles of our Fractional Leaders, and we’ll suggest 2-3 candidates we believe are well-matched. We arrange initial meetings with these candidates to ensure a strong connection and assess their potential contribution to your business.

3. Contracting

Agreeing on engagement terms

An agreement is reached on the Fractional Leader’s time commitment, rates and specific focus areas, including possible KPIs. While these may evolve, they establish an initial framework for engagement.

4. Start & Implementation

Integrating into the team and impactful results
The Fractional Leader begins by integrating into your team, taking on specific tasks from you and your management team. This allows you to concentrate on your core responsibilities. They will assess and enhance strategy, structures, processes, and responsibilities, effectively laying down and executing the blueprint for the role.

5. Handover & Exit

Transitioning to a full-time executive when ready
When there is the possibility to transition to a full-time executive, the Fractional Leader will lead and manage the search for a suitable permanent executive. Masters of Scale can support this process with our expert recruitment partners.
