Expanding your shared service organisation from a transactional hub to a centre of Excellence can deliver real business growth and increased ROI, yet this is not an easy task for executives to achieve.

This exclusive international session will discuss:
  • Controlling & planning: Managing the transfer of activities for a Centre of Excellence
  • Organisational structure and people management in a Centre of Excellence
  • The key to success: Managing an integration project in a changing environment

Senior leadership will discuss:
  • Which service model is right for your organisation?
