Leading companies are taking their global services to the next level.
They’re breaking down functional silos, developing end-to-end processes that span multiple functions and locations. They’re integrating shared services, third-party resources and cloud technologies into cross-functional portfolios that continue to reduce costs while driving new kinds of value.
