Before coming to Concurrency, I represented 50+ companies seeking to bring on IT talent. At first my focus was staff-augmentation. Later, I shifted to permanent placements and eventually to the highly specialized area of IT professional services hiring.
Over the course of thousands of placements, I’ve seen first-hand what happens when hiring firms are unclear about the differences between staff-augmentation and project-based consulting.
Because the word “consulting” is so loosely used in the IT industry, business decision-makers are often unclear about both the basic differences between staff-aug and project-based consulting.
