Best Practices for Shared Services Enabling Functions Adaptation to and Alignment With Business Goals and Objectives

Our client wanted to better understand how shared services (i.e., finance, IT, talent) are transforming to respond to fast changing environments

The objective was to understand how shared services enabling functions are adapting to cost pressures, market uncertainty, GenAI application, and how these changes are occurring.

10EQS assessed the importance of shared services as strategic enablers across professional and financial services. 10EQS evaluated how companies leverage outsourcing capabilities for internal use, an industry shift towards value creation, and how shared services functions tackle business goals, governance, quality, and talent development.
