Helping companies to find elite Operations Officers.
Principal Connections focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain elite Chief Operating Officers and their direct reports. Unlike other C-Suite positions, which tend to be defined according to commonly designated responsibilities, the COO role can vary across most companies, depending on the business and the style and needs of the Chief Executive. Today’s operations leaders must be strategic co-ordinators, excellent collaborators and exceptional communicators who optimize and leverage across resource capabilities. Principal Connections offers a full range of solutions designed to address business operating leadership needs — from strategic search, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.
The Operations Officer: responsible for the daily operation of the company.
Value creation, competitive advantage, and enabling growth through operational effectiveness are at the forefront of today’s operations agendas. Many companies recognize the need for a more comprehensive, integrated approach to operations management; however, they struggle to identify and develop the best talent to lead this function. Cross-functional experience in customer-facing functions; broader P&L responsibility; knowledge of current automation and systems technologies; product innovation; multi-industry or channel backgrounds; and a balance of vision, results orientation, expert skills, co-ordination, and collaborative/relationships skills all exemplify success factors for today’s operational leaders.
