Corporate service teams are essential to business. Without teams like finance, IT, procurement, HR and risk, how would a large organisation function?
Corporate services need to position themselves as the peer and equal to their colleagues. These teams need to show how their work makes direct and meaningful contribution toward the goals of the organisation and their specific stakeholders.
We work with private and public sector corporate service teams, providing guidance on what it takes to be engaged earlier and more frequently. We empower these teams to become indispensable advisors that are worthy of their stakeholder’s trust.
The SPTA program equips corporate service teams with the wherewithal to achieve these goals and become integral to their organisation’s development and success.
Working with executive managers and their teams, we provide first-hand knowledge and insight, practical guidance and valuable skillsets. Our purpose is to help corporate service teams transition from a perceived one-dimensional service provider to a trustworthy advisor who is excitedly sought after by colleagues and stakeholders.
We help corporate service teams better understand the needs and character of their colleagues and stakeholders. With this achieved, teams can break free of ‘siloed’ ways of working to become fully integrated in the organisation’s development.
While early project involvement is a key goal, teams learn how to influence and ‘sell’ outcomes that position them as the leading authority. Considered as indispensable, they become central to achieving desired outcomes.
