Every business needs experienced leadership to guide its technology strategy. We provide CTOs that understand your business and your business objectives. Our methodology focuses on three guiding principles:

What is the REAL Cost of Technology?
The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for your technology initiatives includes more than just the direct expenses. What about the indirect costs associated with any of the following common issues?
- Failed implementations
- Switching systems
- System downtime
- Lack of real-time reporting
- Data breach
- Employee turnover
The right technology leadership will reduce and/or eliminate these costs and mitigate the risks associated with these events.
Our rapid discovery technology assessment gathers and analyzes your key business objectives, existing technology, and current technology roadmap. Key personnel, vendors, and customers may be interviewed to gather additional information. Your industry and the growth phase of your business will impact certain aspects of the assessment.
The fee for the technology assessment can range from $2,500 to $10,000 depending on the scope and deliverables required. The resulting business technology scorecard identifies where you need to focus your attention and resources.
Part-time CTO Services
With CTO Nation, you can get the technology leadership you need but on a part-time basis that you can afford. Monthly retainer-based packages provide clearly-defined services and deliverables. Additionally, we can help you manage the “boots on the ground” technical resources whether they are internal employees, independent contractors, or 3rd party providers.
Full-time CTO Placement
When your business has grown to the level that it needs a full-time CTO, we can help you find the right executive to fill that role. Our network of full-time and contract CTOs grows on a daily basis. We evaluate technology professionals on a wide range of business and technical areas that are needed to be an effective CTO.
The placement fee is 10% of the first year salary or 5% if you have been using one of our CTO service packages for at least six months.
