Collaborative Transformation, including shared services are multi-million pound change management programmes that need skilled and knowledgeable development and management. So please don’t thrust your senior managers into collaborative and shared service activity without equipping them with the skills and knowledge required to be successful.
Their first collaborative transformation or shared service project will be difficult, the next one better and, as their skills improve, they will deliver quality collaborative and shared service projects more quickly. This will enhance your reputation as a good organisation to partner with and bring 'collaborative advantage' in your activities.
It is also an excellent “invest to save” option, to develop your own in-house shared service practitioner team capable of successfully initiating collaborative transformation, including shared service solutions rapidly.
Imagine the benefits your organisation would derive from an in-house team skilled in developing and sustaining the trust between partners, up-to-date on the legal issues and technical barriers to sharing and capable of bringing shared service business cases to fruition.

The directors and visiting lecturers from Shared Service Architects have developed a wide number of in-house programmes to equip managers with the skills and knowledge to work effectively in collaborative transformation, including shared service activity.
