The sector

The business services sector has emerged as a major contributor to economic growth in most western economies, and the sector’s impact is growing in emerging markets.

In current times, much is made of the need to do ‘more with less’ and this model goes straight to the heart of what drives today’s business services landscape.

But success means more than simply fulfilling the terms of a service delivery contract – the challenge for modern business services organisations is to create strong, compelling and sustainable value propositions whilst demonstrating responsible corporate citizenship, not only contributing to the community, but also reducing their environmental impact.

Equally, success would not be possible without strategic investment in current and future generations of leadership. With forecast growth in business services set to continue as more major companies and public sector organisations realise the benefits of outsourcing non-core functions, future success will increasingly be a leadership issue.
