The world today is such that a lot of products and services can be had on demand.

That trend is continuing into the C-suite. For example, fractional CMOs or outsourced marketing executives. Some start-ups, as well as companies undergoing rapid growth and transformation, have also made use of on-demand, outsourced expertise.
