(An interview with Dan McClure by Paul Rubens on CIO.COM published on November 19, 2015.)
Big Hollywood studios abandoned 50 years ago the idea of making movies using talent they had signed under exclusive contracts. Instead they began assembling casts and crews for each movie they made using the best people available from a much larger industry-wide pool.
"What I find fascinating about the movie business is that each project is a complex one and one that is unique," says McClure. "That's similar to the IT space, where one project will need specialists in X, Y and Z, and the next one will need experts in A, B and C. So what we need to be doing is reconstructing IT teams for each project based on the talents that those projects need."
