These observations are very interesting and valid from a Staffing Supplier perspective. However, there are some valid business dynamics that make MSP/VMS necessary. This is no different than the traditional indirect procurement BPO paradigm from a few years ago. The issue with Staffing Industry is that there is a lack of alignment within the eco-system. The MSP/VMS models today are very primitive and true Talent Supply Chain management models are non-existent, wherein incentives are aligned. Everyone - Clients, MSPs and Staffing Providers stand to lose in the current model as the spirit of collaboration is missing to make this a sustainable value add. This situation is very similar to the Auto industry back in the 1970s and 1980s when procurement was a function of price vs. today where there is true collaboration across the supply chain .. think of the procurement process for the 787 Dreamliner.
