Every business, whether large or small, needs a CTO/CDO, CISO, and CFO, apart from their core competency leaders. Large businesses often maintain full-time ‘C’ professionals. However, small and medium firms may not always have the resources to retain these career-driven professionals, who expect top dollar for their elite services. Smaller firms often employ an accountant or general manager to take care of ‘C’ responsibilities, or the owners may try to handle them personally. This inevitably drains valuable time that the owner could have otherwise spent developing the business, and results in less-than-optimal decision-making. Adopting a do-it-yourself attitude towards ‘C’ responsibilities can lead to severe regulatory and non-compliance issues, not to mention inefficiencies that will invariably curtail business growth.
