The fast paced world of Information Technology is constantly changing. News magazines are one frequently used resource in the never-ending battle to stay current. While it takes a large company to produce a nationally-recognized magazine, the size of the company often works to its own detriment. Self-employed consultants, or “free agents,” often are more nimble, and able to follow the rapidly changing landscape. Therefore, the magazine that wishes to have the best and most recent information would be wise to use these free agents. The use of virtual teams will be required, pairing company employees with these outside consultants. And while this arrangement possesses its share of difficulties, the results can be very beneficial.
