So, what’s getting in the way? For starters, transformation has moved from periodic to perpetual. This reality calls for next-level agility, powered by the workforce and capabilities that can keep pace with change. Indeed, 92 percent of business leaders agree that they need contractors that can adapt more quickly to their changing needs. Further, 91 percent agree that they need contractors with a broader range of expertise to address those needs.
When a business leader sets out to deploy a new program or initiative, they may spend over a month recruiting, assembling, and onboarding a team. With the team onboarded, it can take another eight weeks (or more) for team members to learn how to collaborate effectively. During this time, the business loses out on essential productivity and output. Not to mention, the company may have failed to account for other expertise needed to achieve sustainable, long-term results. For example, in a cost-reduction program, the team may lack the change management skills required to foster employee adoption.
