That means managers and executives have to forget the old recruit-and-search for-months methods to acquire talent and revise their perception that “talent” is only full-time employees. The good news is that this talent allows you to achieve the biggest impact on your projects in the fastest time possible. 

In Navigating the Talent Shift, author Lisa Hufford  introduces you to SPEED: a fast, and flexible talent strategy that shows companies how to access the 65 million people that make up the on-demand, specialized talent pool. This strategy shows you how to:
