A message from the editor
January is always an important month for reviewing existing projects and starting new ones, making it a busy month for firms like ICG as we support clients wanting to add critical skills to ensure project outcomes. This idea of on-demand talent is not new, but has been growing in importance and was accelerated through the pandemic as firms recognized that even a large “run the ship” workforce is no match for digital technology and the right specialized team pointed at “change the ship” tasks. So our thanks to a senior team at BCG for reinforcing this message and calling for C-suites to take a more strategic approach to on-demand talent, in what we selected as Article of the Month for rather obvious reasons.
