Why I Started OVESTO! Providing On-Demand Talent | John R. Miles

Feb 6, 2020

Today’s business world has become increasingly competitive. Secular trends like the rising importance of digital technologies to globalization mean that companies both large and small must rely on their talent to separate themselves from competitors. This isn’t an easy task, but it is essential to surviving and thriving in any industry or sector. That is where Ovesto’s on-demand staffing creates an advantage.

The fact of the matter, however, is that great talent is hard to find. As stated by Bain & Company, talent is “one of any organization’s scarcest resources.” Companies that can find that talent and place that talent in the best-fitting roles significantly increase their chances of becoming market leaders. Companies that cannot do this will find themselves struggling to achieve their business goals.

Advantage of Proven Fractional Executives On-Demand

The advantage of hiring a fractional executive is that businesses get 100% of their expertise, network, and brainpower, without incurring 100% of their cost as a full time employee. This preserves margins and the bottom line.

And if a company is facing an inflection point (like trying to find a product-market fit or execute a critical growth strategy)? That company will experience significant headwinds in both the short and long-term. The headwinds may be so strong that they can lead to losses—or even liquidation.

Optimizing Targeted Investment Outcomes

It is with this reality in mind that I founded the company. OVESTO (which stands for Optimizing Targeted Investment Outcomes) is a firm that helps companies bring in top-talent—whenever they need it. Called fractional executives, these transformational leaders can offer you world-class expertise and advice on an as-needed basis. Whether your company is facing a key inflection point or you need an outside voice to help lead a project, you will find that OVESTO can provide a significant return on investment.

Ultimately, Ovesto is disrupting the current consulting, recruiting, and staffing paradigms by providing on-demand staffing with transformational leaders.

How OVESTO Can Help Your Organization

As the founder and CEO of OVESTO, it is my job to find the best, most transformational leaders. From there, I connect them with my clients so that they can best accomplish their business goals.

By investing in fractional executives, businesses of all shapes and sizes can leverage a wide swath of benefits. One of the greatest things about fractional executives is that they can bring a wealth of business experience and sector expertise into your organization. While the details may be unique to your company or sector, the obstacles or roadblocks that you are facing likely aren’t unprecedented. Our transformational leaders can apply the insights from their experiences to help you navigate the specific issues that are affecting your business.

The On-Demand Staffing Model can Unlock Hidden Insights

Not only that, but our transformational leaders offer an insightful outside perspective that can unlock hidden insights at your company. The simple reality is that our colleagues—no matter how talented or skilled they are—adopt a certain perspective and outlook of the world. It is easy to succumb to groupthink, which can prevent your company from identifying out-of-the-box solutions to business problems. With OVESTO’s transformational leaders, however, you can break through groupthink and inertia to overcome those stick business obstacles and identify game-changing opportunities.

Finally, our fractional executives have a key advantage in that they have worked in the trenches. Hiring a visiting executive from Boston Consulting Group, Accenture, Deloitte, or others may seem promising in that they come with a “brand name” attached. That said, many of these firms rely on an offshore model or junior resources to complete their work.

Meanwhile, the OVESTO team has the tangible work experience that they can rely on when operating under uncertainty. Combined with their sheer intellectual horsepower and impressive work ethic, OVESTO clients have the confidence that they are relying on top-tier talent.

The Power of Ovesto’s On-Demand Staffing

Ultimately, OVESTO’s transformational leaders can be just the thing your organization needs to accomplish its business goals. As the founder and CEO of the company, I am proud of the outstanding group of talent within our ranks. Whether you need a transformational leader for one discrete project or several different projects, we are here to help. Your success is our success and you can access our transformational leaders whenever you’d like. That is how our on-demand staffing model works.
