11:00 AM Aligning Customer Centricity with the Ability to Deliver Globally at Scale

In this session, hear how Smith and Nephew have in the last two years, transitioned from a 27 person to a 1000 FTE GBS organisation which has now become a truly pivotal part of the business. Learn how they completely reshaped their organisational structure, insourcing finance and reimagining HR and procurement service, to become a multi-functional support to the business. Understand how, through approaching customer service differently from the outset, they have been able to transform GBS from a unit that wasn’t delivering to one which is now seeing increasing pull from the business to take in additional operations. Discover how, through using digital techniques, there is not a trade-off between customer centricity and efficiency, and how GBS will continue to leverage this into 2020 and beyond.
