Chazey Partners, a practitioners-led global management advisory business and Shared Services Leadership Coalition, a non-for-profit organization, have successfully hosted a Federal Shared Services breakfast forum on Feb 24th 2017 in Washington D.C.
The event was dedicated to Shared Services practitioners from Federal agencies to discuss challenges and key success factors for implementing Shared Services in the public sector. Phil Searle, CEO and Founder of Chazey Partners and Monica Ward, Director of Payroll & Benefits from Service New Brunswick (an internal multi-functional Shared Services organization for the Government of New Brunswick in Canada) have co-presented the case study of Shared Services strategy implementation and evolution in the Government of New Brunswick. Following the case study, the audience were led to an interactive panel discussion facilitated by Robert Towle, Chazey Partners’ Managing Director of North America (East). The panel comprised of distinguished Shared Services leaders in the U.S. Federal Government, including Beth Angerman (Executive Director, Unified Shared Service Management, GSA); Christopher J. Staton (Director of Financial Shared Services, OCFO, USDA), and David A. Vargas (Director, Human Resources Line of Business, OPM).
“The government has dabbled in Shared Services for several decades, and it’s encouraging that the government’s commitment and the level of interest in the industry and good government communities have been growing in recent years. Driving change across the Federal enterprise is hard work, but it’s not rocket science. We hope that programs like this breakfast forum hosted by Chazey Partners can help shine a light on the way forward and build confidence that the Federal Government is heading in the right direction,” commented by John Marshall, Founder and CEO of Shared Services Leadership Coalition.
“It is very encouraging to see so many attendees at this event. Shared Services is the new normal in the private sector and is growing in significance in the public sector. Through years of engagements in the private sector and with government agencies at all levels, we have heard every objection and every excuse and have the knowledge, experience, and expertise to help advance this model and approach within the Federal Government”, commented by Phil Searle, “we are working hard to drive these initiatives in Washington by supporting and advising multiple Shared Services advocacy groups, including the Shared Services Leadership Coalition and the Partnership for Public Service’s Shared Services Roundtable.”
