The Labs in a Box site is the result of an experiment to test the power of the dynamic freelance workforce to create a complex web portal. An Accenture consultant was brought in to the Labs and briefed on the goals of the website, introduced to the stakeholders and provided a budget to hire crowd workers on Upwork, a global freelancing platform where businesses and independent professionals connect and collaborate remotely. The sites creation is a powerful example of how the dynamic and liquid workforce of the future will operate.
