A disruptive approach: Multistep Dynamic Expert Sourcing (MDES)

Expert Sourcing

The French startup PRESANS developed and implemented the Multistep Dynamic Expert Sourcing (MDES) approach. It relies on a combination between a state-of-the-art web-mining technology and a secured multistep problem solving process. In this approach, experts do not register, instead, the various digital tracks they leave on the web allow to detect and to invite them on-demand to tackle most challenging technological problems. MDES has strong advantages for the platform, for the experts and for the client companies.

The pillars of the Dynamic Expert Sourcing Approach

As illustrated in Figure 1, the MDES approach seeks to bring value to seekers by connecting their needs to worldwide scientific knowledge & intelligence. The MDES philosophy holds on 3 points:

  1. Expert Sourcing
  2. Dynamic (or On-Demand)
  3. Multistep

Points (1) and (2) are covered in the next subsection and point (3) in the following. Main advantages are listed at the end of the present section.
