A successful Fractional Integrator:
At Fuel COO, we are the builders and sprinters who ensure your organization succeeds. We’ll get you on track, and enable you to stay on track for sustainable growth.
The process in 3 simple steps:
With a proven success record in finance, technology and business development across multiple industries, Ginny Wood will be an experienced leader executing in your business for a fraction of the cost or risk. She’s an entrepreneurial COO, EOS Integrator, and general manager experienced in building and growing businesses ranging from start-ups to $2B in annual revenue. As the owner of Fuel COO, Ginny delivers fractional COO/Integrator services for companies generating $5-300MM in revenue.
We work with your company for 6 to 8 financial quarters to put strategy, people and operations in place, then help you plan the transition and handover of the role to an internal or new team member. We develop a customized plan, personalized to your businesses challenges and growth opportunities and that is designed to be short term, so you can run with new momentum.
“Growth is stalled and I’m ready to get the company, the Integrator role and EOS running in the business ASAP. I want someone who can lead my team operationally and has experience running a P&L. I am willing to invest in the role for a day, a week for 12-24 months and then transition to a full-time COO/Integrator.”
You and your leadership will be accountable for the goals, and movement towards the goals, with EOS becoming the natural way of doing business, and getting business done. The role of Integrator/COO will be working well.
“I have a limited budget and need to start making real progress with our 1 year goals and EOS basics.”
“I don’t have the leadership team needed to support my one year goal.”
“We have a temporary gap in the Integrator seat. We have started or I’m about to start the hiring process for an Integrator. I need someone to create forward progress in the Integrator seat while I’m hiring.”
Accountability will be created so the full-time Integrator can hit the ground running, your leadership team will be supported, your rocks will be checked off, and EOS used throughout the business.
If you’re in need of an integrator for a limited scope of work, here are additional services that may suit you better.
You will have clarity on whether your current integrator is the right person for the role, or not.
“I’ve missed on the Integrator role before and can’t afford to miss again. I’ve hired a search firm, or we’re doing the search ourselves and I would like a trusted set of eyes to weigh in on candidates.”
De-risk your Integrator hire and support you in picking a great one.
“I’d like to shore up the skills of my Integrator or my Integrator has asked for coaching.”
Your integrator will gain confidence and skill in the role, and will have tools on hand created by Fuel, to move forward without reinventing the wheel.
I had the pleasure of working with Ginny Wood during a very important transitional period in our company. We were at the early stages of EOS and struggling to get traction in the company. Ginny and I immediately connected and I felt a sense of calmness during our conversations that I hadn't experienced for years. Her impact was immediate and it didn't take long for me to realize we had people in the wrong seats in our organization. Ginny was instrumental in making several changes to our leadership team, implemented EOS, and was integral in her role when we purchased the majority ownership in our company from a partner. Ginny’s diverse business experience made her indispensable to me as a leader and coach.John Edgar
I have been running my company for 33 years on brute force and passion and commitment but with no real structure that was duplicatable. I was a visionary yet I couldn’t get my vision moving at the pace it needed to. I also knew I didn’t want the next 10 years to be the same as it has been. I needed structure, I wanted to scale the business and I wanted it to be an operator instead of the lead doer of all things. I discovered EOS and Fractional Integrator in this process. Ginny understood my goals and my challenges and she was a no B.S. kind of person who told it to you straight and understood the business from many perspectives. After hiring her we quickly implemented the EOS structure and the first step was analyzing our people. We quickly discovered we had both the right people in the wrong seats, wrong people altogether, and some great people in the right seats. One thing I appreciated about Ginny, is she could see the end of where her help was no longer necessary as we had our company rocks set, the wrong people removed, the right people brought in and she professionally stepped aside and let me ride the bike without her. She is smart, hard-working, and intuitive. If you have the opportunity to meet her or work with her, pick her brain and listen carefully, she knows what she is doing.Ed Kaminsky
Since we started working with Fuel/Ginny, she has been instrumental in helping me clarify the vision, getting buy-in and alignment as a team, and finally start working together and rowing in the same direction. Ginny has helped us transition people out who were not a core value fit and identify and recruit top talent to our leadership team. If you are looking for organizational growth, progress, and getting EOS systems installed in your business, I would highly recommend working with Fuel. It would have been impossible for us to make the progress we have made in this time frame without Ginny's help and expertise.Jill Butler
