As enterprises focus on realigning their product or services portfolios in view of threats from existing or new competitors, as well as considering changing customer needs and other business priorities, they have to take a serious look at their IT and engineering talent that will be tasked with working on various initiatives including Digital.
With the added aspiration to contain costs and understand dramatically changing dynamics (especially in the current COVID-19 context), they need to examine their current IT and engineering talent acquisition and retention strategy, to include new talent sources that will enable them to accelerate their transformation efforts.
- As end customers, our daily aspiration and experience of consuming products and services leveraging a gig model (ridesharing, home services, and hotels) will continue to influence and impact the way we (within the enterprises we operate in) consume IT and engineering services, and build and deploy new business/operating models.
- If they aren’t already doing so, enterprises should explore how they should modify certain internal business functions and leverage the gig economy that will enable them to access a scalable, world-class talent model at short notice.
