Glenn Davidson, the Department of Commerce's former executive director of enterprise services, said the department is generating millions of dollars in savings as a result of shared services modernization, Federal News Network reported Monday.
The department has modernized the human resource and information technology components of its shared services for the last three years, transitioning from an outdated back-office approach. Shared services is an area where other agencies have a hard time coping in terms of modernization, the report noted. Davidson attributes the transition's progress to his team's long-term approach, business data collection efforts and cost management activities.
He led the commerce department's shared services component for the last three years before transferring to the private sector as Deloitte Consulting's new human capital transformation executive.
