What does a fractional CIO do? Productivity Improvement Workshop

We are continuing our series that gives back to the industry answering the question, “What does a fractional CIO do?” and each article will outline a specific service offering of Outsourced CIO LLC in the day and the life of a fractional CIO.  Some call this “virtual” Chief Information Officer or “fractional” CIO (we prefer fractional as the “vCIO” term has become a buzzword and misleading – see our FAQ on this).  Because the fractional CIO creates value for growing businesses who might not otherwise be able to afford a Chief Information Officer, our topic for today is “Productivity Improvement Workshop”

This is can be a quarterly project or service, estimated time 4-6 hours.
