To bring Shared Services Professionals
together for Learning and Growth
One of ASSA’s goals is to deliver shared services experience, insight and innovation and through establishing and growing locally led state based networks can assist in doing this in a cost effective and supportive environment.
We believe that the benefit of State Based Chapters can help through:
Being a part of a network and sharing ideas leads to shared knowledge. There is usually more than one way of accomplishing a goal and receiving feedback and discussing other points of view really expands your knowledge base and allows you to see things from a broader perspective.
As an individual it is unlikely that you will have the depth of knowledge and experience as that of a group, but collectively the power can be staggering.
Learning from others who have travelled the shared services trail you are now navigating is always a huge plus for your advancement. Why not listen, learn and avoid some of the common pitfalls that most of us will experience without someone pointing the way?
Networking always results in the creation of opportunities, the thing is, you have no idea when or where they may materialise, which is why it’s important to be an action taker, ready to seize on a beneficial opportunity when it does come along.
Joint ventures, partnerships and even needs for services you provide are all possible results of networking.
People within a network will have connections with many other people they have encountered in their own shared services journey. When someone they know has a need and can benefit from information, support and advice offered by someone within the network, that person will likely get the call.
The opposite is also true. You need a service provider and have no one that you know and trust, receiving a recommendation from within your network can be both timely and comforting.
