Overview

Steps to Leveraging Talent You Don't Own

Many companies are employing a broad mix of freelancers, contractors, consultants, and full-timers at all levels of the organization. This tactical approach supports strategies requiring speed and agility to meet the challenges of today’s business environment.

As managers seek nontraditional sources of strategic talent and experiment with fast, flexible ways of engaging these experts, they need a new roadmap.

This shift to deploying “agile talent” is different than hiring freelancers or seasonal workers. These are people doing strategic work, but are just not full-time or permanent.

In this webcast we will explore the why, what and how of planning and using an agile talent pool and offer a number of specific ways to ensure success.

What You Will Learn

Companies are gaining advantage through the strategic use of external experts—made possible by technology and the globalization of talent. Join us as we explore:

  • How agile talent is being deployed in a number of leading organizations 
  • Five critical success factors when utilizing agile talent
  • How organizations need to be structured to take full advantage of agile talent

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
