When building our capability centered around working with freelancers through talent marketplaces, Matthew was able to save us months of trial and error by helping us understand how to structure our program, manage the change and increase adoption, and better understand risks. What I found when building this program is that there is no template, and every organization’s needs are different, so having the right guidance is a force multiplier.
