The GBS Masterminds Podcast
GBS-IT Strategy, Who do you Think Should Take the First Step?
April 3, 2023
Reto-Urs Sahli, former Chief Digital & Information Officer at Asahi Group, takes part in a candid conversation with Ulla De Hondt, Head of Global Business Services at BAT, along with our host Sashi Narahari, Founder & CEO at HighRadius. Join them as they discuss how to build a collaborative GBS-IT strategy instead of leveraging skills independently and many more.
Transforming GBS into a value delivery hub for the enterprise is the top priority of every GBS leader. This transformation is powered by cultural overhauls, workforce upskilling/reskilling, and, most importantly, technology upgrades. Typically, to achieve enterprise tech adoption goals, GBS Heads and Chief Information Officers (CIO) across enterprises work together. However, sometimes the world of the two leaders may vary in terms of urgency, the importance of form versus function, or simply the vision.
