Canadians are concerned about the mandate and promise of the shared services initiative. The initiative is unquestionably important. But can Canada avoid the pitfalls that have derailed similar initiatives in governments around the world to realize the full potential that shared services offers? Are there approaches that reduce the inherent risks and provide faster speed to savings? Did you know that FreeBalance is providing whole-of-government shared services around the world?
During fmi*igf PD Week in Ottawa, we’d like to invite you to the Seizing the Shared Services Opportunity presentation by FreeBalance on Tuesday November 22 from 3 – 4 pm, Rm 211 in the new Ottawa Convention Centre. During the presentation, attendees will learn about:
“The mandate of shared services is to streamline information technology costs and provide hundreds of millions of dollars in savings on an annual basis. Many experts and government officials suggest it will take many years to provide any savings, and even more time to generate the type of savings that forms the mission of Shared Services Canada. The Seizing the Shared Services Opportunity presentation details a risk-averse approach to shared services that provides an acceleration of speed to savings.”
Please RSVP by contacting Dora Villa by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 613-236-5150 x 110.
When: Tuesday, November 22, 3 – 4 pm
Where: Ottawa Convention Centre, Room #211
Presenter: Doug Hadden, Vice President Products at FreeBalance
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
