The Shared Services Journey: Design and Implementation

Organizations are continuing to assess and transform their corporate support functions to improve service, gain scalability, increase compliance, and reduce cost. Transforming a support function to a top-tier leading practice organization requires a range of knowledge from process redesign to technology design and configuration to change enablement. ScottMadden brings a combination of skills and experience in shared services to each project which enables us to customize a plan unique to your organization, enabling you to navigate each stage of your shared services journey.

Our projects range from assessing and improving corporate functions to business case development and shared services design and implementation to optimizing mature delivery models. We are one of the few consulting firms that can work with you from assessment and design through implementation and optimization. In addition, our implementation experience allows us to design a model that goes beyond theory to specifically fit your organization, its workforce, culture, and industry.

How We Help Our Clients

Our approach involves assessing your current operations, developing a robust design to transform your organization, and implementing with a focus on streamlining work to improve the customer experience and gain efficiencies, all while maintaining buy-in from leadership and putting boots on the ground to exceed project expectations. We use workstreams to guide you through a successful implementation, which typically involves planning and project management, policy standardization and process redesign, organization and staffing, communication, change enablement, training, technology, and facilities. Our step-by-step process ensures that policies and procedures are aligned at every level of the project, allowing for critical dependencies to be considered and the time to implementation accelerated.

Organizations are faced with complex challenges—many stem from the lack of a comprehensive program design and effective program implementation. Some of those include:

Complex Challenges: cost reduction, navigating change, identifying what is broken and understanding disconnects, poor employee and customer experience, staffing, addressing rework and creating operational efficiencies, future state planning, technology planning.
