11:30 AM Myth-Buster Audience Interactivity Session – We Asked YOU! Top 10 Tips in Designing a World-Class Centre of Excellence

We talk about GBS often but not enough about CoEs, yet this is one function that can unlock immense value once leveraged properly. However, the journey towards developing a world-class CoE is not an easy one and it does not happen overnight. In this 40-minute interactive session, we discuss the myths in designing CoEs and guide you on your CoE journey.
  • Defining your CoE model and governance structure
  • Developing your CoE – Within GBS? A different location? How do you decide?
  • Managing change and transformation along the CoE journey
  • Understanding best practices on how SSOs are leveraging on CoE functions

How Will This Work?
In preparation for SSOW Asia 2019, we will survey our attendees and ask them what their most pressing challenge/question regarding the journey towards building a world-class Centre of Excellence. The top 10 challenges will be compiled by the SSON team and will be shown on screen at SSOW Asia 2019. The audience will be asked to rank them and our keynote panel will weigh in on their perspectives accordingly.
