In this podcast, Alan Pringle and Sarah O’Keefe discuss the shift in training priorities. In the past, companies would train employees to avoid dependence on Evil Outside Contractors. Today, companies don’t want to invest in training their employees (“They might leave!”), so instead they farm out specialized tasks to expert contractors.
