In all kinds of organizations (big or small), there are usually lots of ideas an initiatives flying around. But in a traditional hierarchy, the manager decides what needs to be done. By creating a project or gig marketplace, you make every project available for everyone to see. You are breaking up silo's and therefore you can use the talent pool of the whole organization.
