A leading global consulting firm which has partnered with Freshminds for several years engaged the consulting projects team to develop a virtual bench of interim consultants to help drive their project delivery through an ongoing period of fluctuating demand.
With project pipelines more volatile now than ever before, our client recognised an opportunity to build greater flexibility and agility into their operating model, using a carefully selected bench of freelance consultants to give them on-demand resource in key areas.
Working with partners, senior managers and the resource planning teams, Freshminds were able to structure a consulting bench that ensured our client had reliable access to mid and senior level consultants at short notice. Running a search and selection process in advance of forecast demand ensured that the necessary resource was available at a moments notice, and gives our client vital visibility when planning their delivery. By tracking consultant availability in real-time, our client has been able to build ongoing relationships with the consultants, establishing them as a natural extension of their core teams.
The Freshminds Virtual Bench model supports large and small consulting firms alike, providing responsive and reliable project resource on demand.
