8:50 AM Panel: Shared Services, Technology and A Decentralised Model – Is This The Way Of The Future?

As functional departments become increasingly tech savvy, with access to SaaS providers, labor arbitrage, and advanced technology, leaders are questioning what the relevance of SSO’s will be in the future. In this panel, discuss:

  • The impact of outsourcing on decentralization
  • The role of CoEs in a decentralized model 


11:00 AM Reframing The Mindset To Become A Shared Services Leader Of The Future: Hypotheticals

With so many changes taking place within the shared services eco-system – everything from changing skill sets, to automation, to operational restructure – it can be easy to get caught up in the bigger picture and hype that transformation brings. It can be helpful to take a step back and reassess if the skills we have as leaders need to transform as well. In this session, break into groups and combine knowledge to find quick solutions to hypothetical challenges.
