CXOs Delivering Shared Services
CXOs across government have multiple roles in implementing a shared services strategy within their organization. Key corporate executives, including the CFO, CXO, CIO, CTO and more, all play a critical role in championing a shared services strategy. Whether an organization offers a shared service or buys into one, many challenges present themselves. CXOs exploring the idea of offering a shared service have answered questions like: “What will I offer?”, “How will I identify the customers base?” and “How do I improve the quality of service while keeping delivery costs low?”. From the perspective of a CXO creating a strategy to buy into a shared service, these questions arise: “How do I know I’m getting the best price?” and “How can I guarantee service levels will be met?”.

CXOs in government are thought leaders and implementers that are engaging to make shared services happen. Organizations are combining their buying power for similar IT needs to get lower prices, improve the return on investment for IT spending, close productivity gaps, leverage negotiations of service level agreements and better deliver on missions in a resource-constrained environment. Attend this breakfast and learn from CXOs who have purchased a shared service, offered a shared service and can provide insights, tools and tips that will help you in your organization.

Join AFCEA Bethesda on May 8, 2014 for “CXOs: Delivering Shared Services” at the Bethesda North Marriott and learn about the implementation challenges and success in shared services across the federal government.
