Shared Services in Higher Education

We understand that reducing costs and increasing productivity is top of mind for you and your stakeholders. This is not an easy task to do so, especially in the higher education space considering limited budgets, faculty buy-in resistance, administrative turnover, mandates and red tape, stringent transparency requirements, and public and administrative scrutiny.

 

However, based upon our keen understanding that you are a VERY passionate group of executives, we know our 2017 SSHE conference will be an event you simply can’t afford to miss! – as was the case for our 2016 attendees!

 

In 2016, we learned from leading SS executives from the University of Illinois System, Yale University, University of Michigan, University of Maine System, New York University, and Emory University, (to name just a few!) on such topics as:

  • The What, Why, How & Then What of Effective Data Analytics to Ensure Continued Process Improvement
  • How to Analyze Your SSC’s Costs Versus Revenue & ROI Thereafter
  • How to Analyze Your Customer Service Delivery & Ensure Customer Satisfaction
  • Comparative Analysis of the Various Shared Services Models & Which Might Be Best for your Higher Education Organization
  • How to Successfully Recruit & Retain Engaged SS Employees
  • How Senior Leadership Assesses & Tracks Your SS Departments’ Activities to Enable Them to Better Understand Its Business Worth & Viability

 

Similar to your peers who attended our hugely successful 2016 program, by attending the 2017 SSHE conference; you’ll also walk away with a wealth of real-world insight that will enable you to meet your 2018 and beyond SSO program initiatives.
