MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

There is a certain requirement across organizations for agile talent. This kind of personnel relates to freelancers who have an expertise in certain aspects which they can provide to organizations requiring them at that point in time. These freelancers do not do functional or administrative tasks as in the past, but take part in the corporate strategyFor example, the Campbell’s soup company wanted to expand to Russia and China. In order to sell canned soup to these markets, they needed to understand the socio- cultural dynamics. Thus they hired an anthropologist for a brief stint to work with them. Similarly an NGO working in Bangladesh needed a cell chemist for a few months of the year and took those services. Similarly, there are educationists who teach certain specialized subjects at seasonal periods of the year. The freelancing style of working will further expand with time.
