Business development in the 21st century requires flexible solutions to dynamic problems. One of the leading trends, in both national and international arenas, is BPO activity (Business Process Outsourcing). Large corporations are trimming more of their employee base to decrease overhead expense and liabilities, outsourcing more project-oriented activities to global freelance workers.
With the decreasing number in small businesses creation, an accelerated rise in freelance consultants has become the new paradigm in employment across most of the developed world. Moreover, there is an increased creation rate of businesses catering to freelance professionals.
The business environment is constantly changing as companies seek to decrease corporate overhead, in the hope of increasing corporate profit margins. Business development seeks to capitalize on national and global commercial trends. This is one of the most important aspects of corporate and business sustainability efforts.
