Advice Worth Keeping – Podcast Series – KPMG Management Consulting

Most enterprises that outsource service delivery to a third-party service provider have in place a center of excellence (CoE.) These CoEs typically focus on streamlining processes, and governing how the two parties’ complementary skills and resources should work together to drive outsourcing excellence.

But when digital labor enters into the contractual agreement between the buyer and the provider, a considerably different shape, form and flavor of governance – what we call a digital labor CoE – is required to effectively address the expanded universe of involved stakeholders and risk and control issues.

In this podcast, Thomas Hall from KPMG Management Consulting, and Kelly Combs, from KPMG’s Risk Advisory group, sit down with Stan Lepeak to discuss:

  • Why establishment of your digital labor CoE needs to be an integrated, cross-functional effort
  • Why your company’s strategy drives where the CoE resides, who should populate it, what operational functions it should perform, and what risks you and your partner should maintain
  • Why sourcing contracts need to bring productivity from digital labor out from behind the service provider‘s curtain.
