2:00 PM WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR ENTERPRISE AND STARTUPS TO WORK TOGETHER EFFECTIVELY? UNLOCKING THE SECRETS TO COLLABORATION

Today’s business services climate demands innovation that will allow SSO and GBS organizations to leap-frog the status-quo and ratchet up the benefits of shared services. Fortunately, there is a parallel push from startups who bring not only the innovation, but also the risk-taking character and agile infrastructure to support exponential value creation.


During this panel we will discuss:


  • How shared services leaders can find, select and engage most effectively with startups
  • How startups must "show up" to work with enterprise - directly and through strategic partners
  • The common obstacles to collaboration and how to overcome
