Chief Operating Officer
The Chief Operating Officer (COO)
We researched about a very specific type of manager: the chief operating officer (COO). As the competitive battle for customers, capital and talent rages around the globe, companies of all sizes and in all industries are striving for the right balance between optimal strategic development and operational excellence – a balancing act that ties up a lot of time and a lot of resources. Top managers are beginning to set their sights higher and demand a new quality of specialization. While the CEO remains in charge of the “where” question, the COO coordinates the “how”.
We trust that you will find this study an entertaining read that gives you food for thought.
