Scott Manning, partner and corporate & shared services practice leader at ScottMadden, Tina Krebs, partner and human resources practice leader at ScottMadden, and Trey Robinson, partner at ScottMadden, will present, “Shared Services 101: The Fundamentals of Designing, Building, and Implementing Shared Services,” for all levels of shared services.

Additionally, Brad DeMent, partner and finance and accounting practice leader at ScottMadden, and Jerred Crosby and Doug Utley, partners at ScottMadden, will present, “Next Generation SSCs: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating that Next Layer of Value.” This workshop, developed for those who have been on their shared services journey for more than three years, will explore best practices to achieve the next layer of benefits.
Sam Poston, former partner and senior vice president at ScottMadden, will serve as conference chair and moderate the panel, “The Tipping Point,” which will discuss expanding shared services capabilities, key growth drivers, and emerging opportunities that will build a lasting competitive advantage.

We are very excited to share these latest results,” said Mrs. Krebs.
