miércoles, 03. octubre 2018, Barcelona, How to Build, Scale and Govern Your Own Non-Employees Platform

The Freelance Economy and the rise of platform business models are changing the world around us. 
Today, a company’s workforce is very likely to comprise an extended ecosystem: employees, shared employees, agency workers, fixed-term workers, freelancers, digital nomads, etc. While this biodiversity of the jobs market needs to be nurtured, it is also creating new challenges e.g. sourcing the right talents, ensuring they collaborate seamlessly, developing upskills programs and implementing HR policies to keep all workers engaged.
At Euro Freelancers, we all share the same core frustration: we believe the the world of work is changing too slowly. The time to put the non-employee workforce and platforms to good use is right now, and we want to help. That’s why we’re proud to present this Masterclass, a half-day course during which you’ll learn how to develop your own non-employees based platform, with a strong emphasis on practical business applications and friction removal. We’ve got two top-notch instructors with proven track records to help you along the way.

(*) This Masterclass will use an adaptation of the Business Model Generation Canvas, the Platform Design Canvas, the Platform Calculator, and the Community Canvas to simulate the set up of a non-employees based platform.
What is this Masterclass?
A half-day of training and strategic thinking where you will learn with others how to build, scale and govern your own non-employees based platform. You’ll be able to apply the learning directly to your company, product, service, or to a market that you are thinking to access.
After building your understanding and capacity, we will help you design a roadmap with step by steps actions to validate your platform ideas and test it through a lean prototyping approach.

What is a non-employees based platform?
A non-employees based platform is a decentralized group of highly-skilled independent workers who could be accessed on-demand. To work effectively with a pool of external experts, companies need to design an ideal architecture and the right tools to nurture their non-employees based platform.
Estimates by McKinsey predict that 70% of the working population in Europe will become freelance by 2030 and that companies pursuing platform strategies yield a better payoff in both revenue and growth. Further, according to a recent IBM study, 46% of organizations are investing in or considering new platform business models.
Why it matters
The continued rise of independent work is driving companies, large and small, to rethink the way how they staff their projects and flexibilise their workforce. 
Companies need to develop a broader talent strategy that acknowledges the new diversity within the workplace and reflects the growing number of non-employee contributors. This will add competitive advantages: access to specialised skills to staff project-based work and agility in the face of volatile and complex business environment.

What you will learn
