Designed for all levels of maturity, the
programme centralises around latest developments within the space, in particular

innovative ways of generating revenue within SSOs, as well as
mobility, designing and executing a GBS framework, and more. The agenda is further broken down by function-based streams and summits, offering those in
HR, IT, Procurement, BPM and
Sourcing the opportunity for a dedicated learning experience.
The SS&O space has evolved significantly in the past few years, most notably with the recent offshoring versus in-country versus near-market debate. With the closing gap on costs between moving overseas and staying near-shore, the advantages of setting up centres closer to target markets are increasing, causing many organisations to re-think their offshoring strategies.
With this in mind, this year's agenda also introduces
regional roundtables, to ensure participants understand the 'big-picture' benefits of each delivery option but also to get the necessary granular details on each region. Moderators who have regional success and can share their lessons learned will lead roundtables on the
UK, Nordics, Eastern Europe,Western Europe,China and
"It's a no-brainer. SSO Week is the industry's number one gateway to sharing knowledge, trends and transformational practices. Now more than ever it's vital for me to build and maintain a network of peers who I KNOW are pushing this whole space forward. That's why I'd never miss it," said
Philip Whelan, Head of European Business Service Centre, BP of a previous SSO Week.
The SSO Week, produced by SSON, will also host site tours to the
Johnson & Johnson and
Siemens Shared Services Centres, and hold the annual
European Shared Services Excellence Awards.
