We work closely with our clients to drive long-lasting value through the creation of specialized pools of global talent and innovation, helping them build antifragile and resilient organizations.
Now more than ever, there is an increasing need for companies to quickly and efficiently optimize their resources to help sustain them from future shocks. Large companies have found immense value in creating Global Centers of Excellence (GCoE), which extend beyond the traditional GCC/GIC models, to establish expertise, drive innovation, access global talent and markets. We act as an extended team to our clients from strategy, to execution across this value chain. Our seasoned advisory teams bring deep and nuanced domain expertise ensuring there is a sustainable engine of business and operational excellence.
While larger organizations leverage value from setting up Global Centers of Excellence, the process involves high upfront investment and usually takes between 6 to 8 months to setup. We are witnessing an increasing number of small and mid-size companies looking for quicker and less cost-intensive solutions to ramp-up their operations.
The evolving business scenario has propelled companies to pivot to models that ensure resilience, continuity, and efficiency.
Below is a quick snapshot of the suite of models to GCoE set-up we offer our clients:
| ||GCOE||GCOE Accelerator||BOT Model|
|Aligned to customer||Aligned to customer||Aligned to outsourcing partner/vendor|
|Customized and built to suit customer needs||Customized and built to suit customer needs||Built by vendor/partner (may or may not precisely match client needs)|
|Managed by customer||Managed by Zinnov||Managed by outsourcing Partner|
|High upfront investment||Low upfront investment||Low upfront investment|
|6-8 months||4 months||1-3 months|
*Exit options here refer to the ability to scale-down operations or transfer the center to another location.
Zinnov’s GCoE Accelerator Model is a “plug- and- play” solution which can be turned-around in as little as 90 days and helps companies rapidly scale new capabilities and ways of working. GCoE Accelerators provide clients with the same benefits as a traditional center but with lower risk, no long-term commitment, lower upfront investment, and ultimately, significantly more flexibility in terms of scale and exit options.
