While some corporations limit the ability for line managers to blur the lines between contingent staffers and full-time team members, there are actions to take that can help you, your in-house and outsourced team adjust and thrive in this new realm.
InSource, Cella Consulting, and The BOSS Group have partnered to present the 2012 In-House Creative Service Industry Report, benchmarking internal creative departments within corporations and other organizations throughout the U.S. and beyond.
Leaders of creative teams came together to share their insights and learn from one another at the InSource Roundtable held on June 5, 2012, on the campus of SAS Institute in Cary, North Carolina.
Thoughts on management from Paul Hawken, environmentalist, entrepreneur, and author.
“Good management is the art of making problems so interesting and their solutions so constructive that everyone wants to get to work and deal with them”
Like any business that is launching new products or services, all of the planning and development we have put into the new creative services department will have been for naught if we don’t announce the launch of new processes to our clients.
Process documentation seems like a lot of work and, it is. But its benefits, when used properly, make it well worthwhile.
When you are recruiting top-talent for your in-house agency, are you thinking about how innovative they are?
Investing in your team’s long-term growth may not be a budget buster, but it does take your time and attention. Skimping here could lead to a full-out budgetary impact later. Is it worth it?
In-house creative departments often serve the conflicting masters of pleasing our in-house clients and staying true to the brand. It’s a vicious cycle, but maybe this doesn’t have to be the case.
Registration is now open for InSource’s next Career Path roundtable in the Research Triangle area of NC
