ScottMadden, Inc., a general management consulting firm, recently sponsored and presented at sharedserviceslink’s North American Shared Services Leaders’ Summit. This event included various sessions by ScottMadden focused on global business services (GBS).
Brad DeMent, partner and finance and accounting practice area leader at ScottMadden, and Trey Robinson, partner at ScottMadden, facilitated a session focused on the five ways to avoid GBS dysfunction. Leading organizations are recognizing the business value of GBS beyond the transactional cost and operational efficiencies associated with shared services and outsourcing. “As traditional shared services evolve to GBS, organizations must consider ways to grow while optimizing processes, delivering innovation, and focusing on the customer,” said Mr. Robinson.
Mr. Robinson also chaired the GBS stream and presented a session entitled “Living Up to the Hype – What Defines a True GBS?” This session reviewed the definition of GBS and the characteristics of the model. Attendees gained insight into the challenges and benefits of moving their shared services organization to this new delivery model. “We were excited to share practical experience about roadblocks to avoid so that companies can realize the significant value of moving to a GBS model,” said Mr. Robinson.
