The following situation will probably be familiar to you: not projectable, sudden bottlenecks, demand of working capacity in business-critical areas or short to medium term peaks in work load of high performers in departments dealing with processes of regulatory relevance or procedures which are time-sensitive for your business operations.

You wish to adequately and flexibly act and find a solution which fulfils all your requirements to manage the shortness of resources: exactly covering your demand, highly qualitative and experienced, short-term availability. At the same time, you do not wish to increase the headcount of your organisation because the critical situation will be time-limited and the accumulating workload is not plan- or foreseeable.
