George Post recently retired as the Director of World Headquarters Procurement at life science giant Johnson & Johnson.
There, as part of his broader mission to optimize procurement and consulting services, he founded an on-demand talent program called Specialists on Demand, or SOD. SOD is designed to bring J&J executives access to specialized independent professionals, consultants, experts, and executives for targeted engagements across the enterprise.
Business Talent Group is a preferred partner in the program, offering business leaders a low-cost, high-value option for solving complex strategic and operational issues.
On this episode, BTG's Leah Hoffmann speaks with George about:
- Why J&J decided to build a program to harness the power of on-demand talent at the enterprise level
- The program's initial goals and structure, and how they evolved over time
- His best practices for engaging business leaders, differentiating the program from other sources of human capital, and tracking and analyzing the program's performance
