  • (1888PressRelease) September 17, 2010 - We are pleased to announce that Anne Devine has joined the SSON Collaborative Research Network ( team where she will apply her skills to support process benchmarking, interactive polling and webcast facilitation across all research areas.

    Anne brings to her role over a dozen years of experience in Shared Services design optimization and best practices research. Most recently, Anne was a consultant to Corporate Executive Board's Shared Services Roundtable program, where she facilitated program webcasts and led best practices research across a wide number of processes within Shared Services.

    Since 1997, Anne has been designing and administering benchmarking surveys and related best practice research supporting Shared Services organizations; working with consulting organizations, The Hackett Group, Executive Performance Group and The Corporate Executive Board. Over this period of time, development and expansion of the Shared Services organization model has emerged as a critical element of Finance, Human Resources, and Information Technology strategy in improving standardization, quality and productivity and in reducing cost and complexity, and Anne has devoted her energies to helping companies maximize the benefits of this model.

    Anne firmly believes that even the most mature and successful organizations - whether part of shared services or not - have numerous opportunities to improve their performance and that membership in SSON Collaborative Research delivers a unique and effective approach for doing so. Her passion is helping companies to uncover those opportunities and pursue them.
