Don't give up on 2016 yet!

November 9, 2016 Dorothy Mead

There is still time to make the most of the last couple of months of the year before you postpone projects until January. Dip into the global independent talent pool you’ll find at Talmix to discover how on demand can change your business.

Read how these two companies made headway towards their 2016 objectives in record time:

Filling a difficult interim position with speed 

An international provider of parking solutions needed a CFO urgently because of unexpected sick leave. The company found the best match for their interim position on the Talmix platform in days.

The consultant had knowledge of the necessary country and its tax legislation. His finance and accounting background met their needs and while he had extensive international experience, he was located within 25km of the company’s HQ, so there was no need for him to relocate.

His approach to understanding the business, company structure and organisation and getting familiar with the team, processes and systems went down well with the company. He quickly determined key deliverables and expectations and put those into an action plan. The company were able to get back on track sooner than expected and complete their year end and financial planning on schedule.

Keeping to deadline under pressure

An industrial manufacturer needed a project manager to ensure a successful pilot for a new initiative and keep it on schedule. What they found when they came to Talmix was a broad range of relevant consultants, from which they chose a consultant who was Lean Six Sigma and Prince 2 qualified.

What really made him stand out was that he could leverage his past experience working with a leading power and temperature control equipment rental company. This enabled him to see through both product development as well as market roll-out.

He was able to utilise project management methodologies learned through Prince 2 to move from "project brief" to the "product" phase effectively as well as efficiently. By defining the stakeholder structure and appropriately implementing a communication management strategy he was able to deliver on the project objectives thoroughly and within the deadline.
