Organizational spin-offs can provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for creating momentum and opportunities for future success as leadership climbs out of functional silos and collaborates on building a Global Business Services (GBS) organization that ultimately serves the enterprise.

However, along with any opportunity come challenges, and on today’s podcast Rick Bertheaud, a principal in KPMG’s Shared Services and Outsourcing Advisory practices, talks with Stan about:

  • How a GBS model can uniquely enable success with spin-offs
  • Why process ownership and governance remain the two most important foci for leadership
  • Practical advice for leadership making a business case for establishing GBS as an operating model of the future.
