- Shared Services – Government and Education Break the Status Quo
While at first glance, these turbulent times may hardly seem opportune for undertaking a transformative program like shared services, Accenture’s point of view is that the timing is perfect. Shared services has already proven itself as an efficiency generator for traditional back office functions, in addition, the model is maturing in ways that will bring additional benefits most government and education leaders have yet to even consider. That makes shared services more than a current coping strategy, it positions it as a key investment for the future.
- IT Transformation –The Journey to High Performance
Accenture’s journey to high performance IT began back in the year 2000, when Accenture’s internal IT team- the Accenture CIO Organization- began reducing costs and increasing investments in innovative technologies. Ten years later, the results are impressive: increased efficiencies, stunning cost reductions and a 300 perfect return on Accenture’s transformational IT initiative.
