Our Executive Management Services are available through all stages of the ecosystem lifecycle.
Ecosystems are typically driven by volunteers who must balance their participation in the alliance with priorities and obligations of their day jobs. Whether they are engaged at the ecosystem board level, or actively participate in workgroups, they need to optimize their engagement by acting on proven methodologies vs. developing from scratch, and have the ability to contribute at a strategic level vs. spending precious time on operational details.
We can help, by providing seasoned managers who know what works and what doesn’t. When part of an engagement, our dedicated or shared executive directors work with ecosystem leaders and lead the Inventures team to provide:
- Strategic guidance through all phases of the alliance lifecycle
- Business planning to ensure adequate funding
- Program development to drive alliance objectives
- Best practices counsel to minimize costs and maximize effectiveness
- Single point of contact for all Inventures services and third-party service providers
Engaging Executive Management Services enables ecosystem volunteers to dedicate their time to strategic issues and business objectives while you rely on Inventures management to recommend and ensure execution of plans and programs.
Some clients may want to engage specific industry experts for various phases of the alliance lifecycle, but don’t want the headache of recruiting, providing benefits, paying for office facilities, etc. In these situations we help recruit and hire industry experts to support your specific needs. The industry expert remains dedicated to your ecosystem, but can make full use of our facilities, technical infrastructure, and competitive employee benefits.
