As cashable savings become harder to find, many organisations are turning to shared services and collaborative working. Unfortunately, many areas that appear to be prime candidates for collaboration fail at the first hurdle if the business and cultural conditions are not right. SPS has been involved at the forefront of collaborative working and shared services - for example - at both the Procurement Agency for Essex and the London Centre for Excellence and we understand what circumstances are required for success in this sensitive area.
If you are considering an initiative like this, why not contact us for an informal discussion. We would be happy to give you an early indication of your project's likely prospects, helping you concentrate your effort and resources where you have the best chance of success.
If you are already familiar and comfortable with collaborative wroking, look out for our new White Paper due out later this year, based on London organisations collaborating to improve their supplier relationships.
