Corporate & Business Functions

Turning business support into business value

Transform business-support functions

Accelerate your impact by examining performance and efficiency within and across functions such as finance, HR, procurement, legal, and others.

Develop and scale shared-service centers

Design, implement, and improve end-to-end general and administrative processes in captive or outsourced models from delivery centers around the world. Reorganize centers to capitalize on economies of scale while receiving benefits of speed, accuracy, consistency, and, most of all, internal-customer satisfaction.

Capture value through zero-based productivity

Put your money where your strategy is by using zero-base principals to challenge approaches to planning and spending across your organization. Productivity programs are tied into top-down targets to create cost-management transparency throughout your support functions.

Integrate digital capabilities through automation at scale

Recognize which business-support functions would benefit from digital and automation technologies and plan and implement their use across your organization. Find the right external service providers for your needs—ones that will help you to unlock maximum value from new technology.
