3:30 PM Workshop C: New Service Delivery Models For Business Growth

The key to establishing any successful SSC lies in having a robust operating and service delivery model which has the stability and flexibility to adapt to the changing needs of the organization, thereby ensuring plans for future growth can be achieved. However, there is no one perfect model that all SSCs can adopt or develop from scratch. Organizations should be equipped to build on the service delivery process that is already in place, strengthen what works and transform the rest in a process of continuous improvement. In this workshop you will learn:
·         What objectives are driving the selection of appropriate Service Delivery Models
·         How more distributed models can reinforce Governance on scope extension and service delivery
·         How new SDMs are allowing GBS to better contribute to profitable growth and to working capital initiatives
