There are many roads to setting up a consultancy. Most common is where you were previously consultants, met or worked together on a project, and with a meeting of minds, decided to go it alone. Less commonly, you may have spotted an opportunity, and set up to realise it.
However you got here, there will have been or will be a point at which to grow effectively you need to split responsibilities and formalise decision-making. There's no single answer, but there are common considerations you need to address. In this module, we include:
- The Role of The Board;
- Leadership - The real Role of the board;
- Remaining Client Facing;
- Key CEO, CFO, COO and CTO Responsibilities;
- The CKO (Chief Don't Know) Board Member without easily defined role!
- Non-Execs and Coaches.
Note that this doesn't replace Institute of Directors or similar training. It is a practical way to create an effectively functioning board. If you want the certifications, look at the IoD or similar.
