2:00 PM Driving Impactful Transformation, whilst Cutting Costs, during an Economic Crisis

With the recent COVID-19 Crisis has come an increased pressure to Digitally Transform, whilst simultaneously cutting costs. For many IT and Shared Services teams their initial focus was enabling an entirely virtual workforce overnight. Now they suddenly find themselves under pressure to reduce costs and increase the pace and performance of their digital initiatives. But where to start, without a clear view of the bottom line profit delivered from each of those initiatives? This workshop will look underneath the digital service transparency carpet - we’ll discuss why a deeper understanding of how IT and Shared Services are; made up, consumed, budgeted and ultimately cross-charged is essential, in order to optimise investments.

Delegates will leave the session:

  • With an in-depth understanding of the challenges of running IT and Shared Services as a business during a Financial Crisis.
  • Having learnt how to embrace the tools and methodologies available to cross-charge Services internally and to sell them externally.
  • With new concepts for ensuring regulatory Compliance in complex cross-country service set ups.
