is a tool for companies, teams, organizations, or entrepreneurs working with external vendors.
It helps to organize the team collaboration in a market fashion by splitting the work into small bits (microjobs) and delegating them to the most suitable team members, while giving people full freedom in all other aspects of their work life.
Microcontracts is a better way to work powered by freedom!
Gather the team of independent professionals or turn your employees into “intrapreneurs” by giving them freedom in what work they do, how they do it, when and where and how much they work.
Split the workload into pieces (microjobs) which should to be done in order for business function or project completion. Receive the ideas from your team as well. Prioritize and budget microjobs.
Ask your team members about which microjobs the can do, and on which conditions - price and deadline. Choose the most suitable offers based on your objectives.
With microcontracts you can stop controlling irrelevant aspects of work, and focus on what is really important. When you give people a choice in the work they do, and let them decide when, where and how much they work, it makes an enormous impact on their happiness, wellbeing and consequently - engagement.
In microcontracts a team collaborates on its private marketplace where the leader (acting as a client) asks his team members (acting as vendors) to do certain bits of work. The client can also receive offers about what should be done from his vendors. Finally, from the range of different options leader chooses microcontracts which he expests will bring the most value for achieving project goals.
Microcontracts platform uses market mechanism to find the most suitable people for different kinds of work bits - from “boring” to “exciting”. More boring and less popular microjobs can attract vendors by offering better money compensation. On the other side of the spectrum there are the most interesting microjobs that attract many proposals, allowing the leader to choose the most beneficial for the company.
There is no place for busywork in microcontracts. Market approach to choosing the bits of work to be done means doing only the work which justifies its cost for the company. Instead of thinking about how to keep employees fully occupied within their working time, the focus is shifted to having a wide range of professionals that can be engaged when there’s a real need.
