Executive leadership needed to drive change

Executive leadership needed to drive change

Within the next 3 years, most global companies are expected to undertake the massive project of centralizing their global business services (GBS) within a single organization. But surprisingly few companies plan to empower a senior executive to steer the organization through the change and ultimately manage the single GBS organization. With no one at the wheel globally, companies are unlikely to realize anywhere near the full value that the transformation can bring.
