Ten09 Consulting's Expert Network is composed of talented and motivated "T-shaped" professionals with expertise across the disciplines shown below:
What is a "T-shaped" professional?
The vertical bar on the T represents depth of expertise in a single field, whereas the horizontal bar represents the ability to collaborate across disciplines with experts in other areas and apply knowledge in areas of expertise other than one's own.
How do clients benefit from the expert network?
The expert network is composed of freelancers and moonlighters that can augment the client project team with skills, knowledge and experience that may not be available within the organization. More diversity leads to more ideas and breakthrough innovations!
How does the expert network member benefit?
Members gain experience with an established organization and contribute to the development of a breakthrough innovation. The work is fun, inspiring and rewarding and enables members to expand their professional network with clients and other members. In addition, Ten09 Consulting will periodically host exclusive, in-person events for members of the network.
Are expert network members paid?
Absolutely! Payment is based on an 80%/20% split. For example, if the negotiated client bill rate for the expert network member is $100/hour, the member will receive $80/hour and Ten09 will retain $20/hour worked.
How are members recruited, selected and deployed?
Ten09 directly screens and accepts each member of the exclusive and private expert network. During a client engagement, the client and Ten09 work together to determine who is needed from the expert network to join the team. Selected members will typically be involved in brainstorming sessions, concept development and/or prototype development for approximately 5-20 hours/week, and will vary based on client needs and member availability (freelancer vs. moonlighter).
