How Organisations Find Consultants and Experts in the Open Market?
Source: Expert Magnet
There is significant scope for improving the way in which organisations and individual buyers find consultants, experts and professional services when panels and tenders are not appropriate. Because of the flexibility and low cost base this sourcing approach offers, it is projected to continue or grow as a legitimate approach to sourcing. However, the expectations of how this is undertaken are expected to change. These changes will be driven by the increasing time pressure on individuals, as well as the demands of ensuring any external spend delivers the maximum value. The balance will be between providing enough flexibility and freedom to enable buyers to still source openly, while enabling them to do so in a more robust manner.
