8:15 AM Global Business Services Transformations – Creation of Global Mindset Shifts

For years, Global Business Services has been hailed as being the Holy Grail of the SSC model, offering unparalleled saving in efficiency and increased process efficiency. And yet, with only 5% of European centres operating or moving towards a Global Business Services model, it seems that many organisations are struggling to realise the benefits. 

In this session, hear from Global Business Services leaders about the strategies that they have employed to:
•Successfully transform to become Global Service entities
•To manage their end-to-end processes on a global scale
•Address the challenges associated with this transition, and learn how, for these centralised groups to succeed in a digital era, leaders must focus on agility, customer service, and talent development, in addition to cost reduction and process efficiency.

5:00 PM No Mandate, No Problem: Establishing a Global Service Framework for Fragmented Business Services

So much has been written about the benefits of Global Business Services, but what happens when an organisation doesn’t have a global sponsor, mandate or leader to support and drive forward a single vision?
Fresenius-Kabi have done just this –adopted a strategy for greater cohesion between their global shared services hubs without a central mandate. Learn how, up until very recently, these centres were operating differing target operating models, processes, and delivering a range of activities to their organisations, but how the centres are now collaborating to develop a single vision for expansion.
