The Reality And Opportunity Of Simultaneous Delivery
How Can GBS Leaders Simultaneously Manage Cost-Reduction, Service Level Improvement and Grow the Service Footprint? This question is more relevant now than ever.
Newer technologies like Big Data, AI, ML, etc., have given us the ability to harness data to derive meaningful insights and trends, which in turn, are helping industries to redefine their business models. Customer experience has taken center stage. Expectations from GBS have also changed.
Reducing Costs And Delivering Value
It is no question that you as a GBS professional would like to, if not now but one day, scale your business. However, I am sure that one question that always arises when the topic of “scaling” comes to mind is, “how does one increase the delivery in value while simultaneously reducing costs?” If this sounds familiar, you are not alone.
In fact, I have been there numerous times and lucky for you, I have both failed and succeeded. This means that I know ways that can lead to failure, and I know ways that can lead to success. And my goal is to help you succeed without failing. In the following, I am going to share with you 5 tangible steps for each of these concepts (decreasing costs & increasing value) that will help you to not only increase the value of your business, but also reduce costs and create the scaled business of your dreams.
A Win-Win Approach To Developing Leadership Within GBS
GBS is a unique and brilliant construct because it has a broad overview of most work processes along with transformation leadership experience within a company. What young GBS leaders don’t always have is the experience of being in a business unit or product unit of the company. What if you rotated leaders between GBS and the business for mutual growth and development?
Leadership roles with the ideal outcome being a stepping-stone for talent development is an overlooked strategy when it comes to improving skills in both business units and GBS.
What GBS Leaders Need to do to Acquire and Retain Talent In the COVID Era

Being a GBS professional amid a pandemic, I am sure that you have noticed the changes going on around you at work; personally, it is something that we can’t help but notice. People are leaving, people are re-evaluating, and people are considering their options. The massive changes in the world have had a dramatic effect on the employee value proposition, especially in the shared services industry
Performance Tracking And Management
Building and Running a World-Class GBS Organization
Perception! That’s a perfidious companion for every service leader. Months and years of diligently exceeding service levels can be negated with just one anecdotal issue. The only way to manage this is to diligently and continuously tell your story on performance management. Choosing what metrics to report and how to share your message is key to managing perception.
