Case study

In this section we present an example of project management with a Fractional CTO.

The objective

The objective of the collaboration between company X and the fractional CTO was the development of a project estimated to last about 6 months using a team of two to ten developers and a project manager.

Initial phase

The initial phase lasted for about a month and required a full-time presence of the CTO, who was responsible for carrying out an in-depth analysis of the specifications, defining the technical, architectural and technological choices as well as creating the guidelines for organising the development phase and coordinating the team.


The actual development phase required for the first two months a 70% commitment of the CTO to deal with the technical detail of the tasks, monitoring the quality of the code, and resolving any issues that arose or reviewing technical choices. The CTO's commitment in the remaining months of development was reduced to 50% anddedicated to monitoring and technical detail of the tasks performed.


After the development phase, a few weeks were devoted to the launch phase, in which the CTO was involved 30% of his time in creating the final technical documentation, analysing the quality and safety of the product and verifying compliance with the standards of the production environment.

Post launch

The final post-launch phase lasted for approximately two months after production start-up and required only a few hours per week to monitor and make any evolutionary or corrective changes to the product.
