VIRTUAL & INTERIM CIO SERVICES
1. VIRTUAL CIO SERVICE
This service is designed for any organisation; especially SME’s who need the services of experienced IT management.
What is the Service?
Given our tight economy and the prospect of a prolonged downturn, many SME’s are looking at innovative ways to implement change and “do that IT thing” much more cost effectively. Most IT management teams are fully engaged in current projects and “business as usual” and would appreciate any help they could get, especially a fresh “set of experienced hands” to work with them on a short-term basis to offer advice and suggestions on how to deliver value to their business.
We will provide the services of a CIO or Head of IT on an interim or ad hoc basis, either onsite at your office or on a virtual basis (phone, Skype, IM or Webinar). The service is ideal when:
- You need an experienced person to step into the IT management role during periods of peak activity, absence or transition.
- IT management needs temporary assistance to implement a change program,
- You need an experienced person to act as a sounding board for your IT management on an ad hoc or a more structured basis
What the Service Includes
The service is intended to provide advice, get an opinion, help with a problem and even mentor the IT leadership. It is not intended necessarily for consulting-type work but the decision is yours. For example, an IT leader needs to be very proficient in the following core disciplines:
Core IT Management Disciplines

- · To step into the IT management role during periods of absence or transition; and
- To act as a sounding board for a client's IT management

Here is what one CIO had to say about this service:
“Hiring Steve was one of the best decisions I have made in my career to date. Steve brings results! I engaged Steve for a period of seven months full time to provide me with additional Executive bandwidth at crucial time for our organisation. During this time Steve transitioned his exceptional knowledge in IT Governance across the Information Technology domain and our organisation. Steve significantly contributed to the IT strategic planning process and the overall development of my management team & business unit. Steve provided essential management support and professional Executive advice. Steve quickly developed an understanding of the core challenges facing our business and proactively engaged with key stakeholders without my involvement to enable solutions. Steve developed an incredible rapport with my management team and their staff. Steve regularly shared new insights and provided additional guidance to all staff that he came into contact with. In summary Steve is a professional Executive with exceptional experience in Information Technology, corporate business and governance. He is person of integrity and now a great friend.”
