Robert Towle of Chazey Partners Attended an Off-the-record “Roundtable” on Federal Shared Services

Robert Towle of Chazey Partners, a practitioners-led global management advisory business, specializing in Shared Services and business transformation, was invited to attend an off-the-record Roundtable discussion on Federal Shared Services organized by the Oversight and Government Reform Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives on March 30th 2017.  Robert was one of Shared Services professionals from the private sector exclusively invited to join this Roundtable.

The purpose of the Roundtable was to explore the private sector experience and adaptability of the business model to the government.  The discussion covered a wide range of topics, tapping into key issues such as governance, capacity, standardization, investment capital, among others.  The Committee members and staff were given an unfiltered, leading edge feel for the value proposition and implementation challenges.  It’s unclear what will come next, but the Roundtable is a promising sign of growing Congressional interest and potential for increased oversight and/or legislation to accelerate recent progress and benefits realization.

“We are honored to be invited to join this Roundtable and to share our Shared Services experience in the private sector and with government agencies at all levels.  There is no doubt that implementing  Shared Services in Federal government has some unique challenges, however, Federal Shared Services adoption could be improved and expedited through impassioned leadership and an effective partnership between the public and private sectors”, commented by Robert Towle, COO of Chazey Partners.
