As Digital Leaders we have to figure out how to meet our goals with human capacity. This is often one of the hardest parts of our roles. In this training, we’ll talk about how to evaluate whether or not to contract for a role or plan for a staff person. We’ll work through a few key breakdowns:
● Evaluate skill vs strategy positions
● Determine the capacity in a single staffer vs multiple focused contractors
● Balance managing contractors
● Factor the costs of staff vs contractors
● Consider the ethics of contractors
This training On-Demand is available to Leaders level members.
