11:00 AM Panel: What Does It Take for Enterprise to Effectively Work With Startups and How Must Startups “Show Up” to Work with Enterprise? Unlocking the Secrets to Collaboration

Today’s business services climate demands innovation that will allow SSOs & GBS Organisations 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:

·        Effective methods to identify relevant startups to work with

·        What would you need to see from a startup today to begin work with them tomorrow?

·        What are the biggest challenges when working with startups/enterprise with examples on how to overcome

·        Pillars of effective technology/partner ecosystem in the context of GBS being a digital transformation engine
