Global Capability Centers (GCCs) act as strategic business partners to their parent organizations, making them global hubs for open innovation and untapped talent, that safeguard them against future shocks. Leading global organizations have found immense value in establishing Global Capability Centers, which extend beyond the traditional low maturity Captive Centers/Global In-house Center (GIC) models, to gain access to top talent and global markets.

Depending on organizational readiness, companies are measured on Zinnov’s proprietary maturity model to determine a customized center setup model that best suits clients’ business objectives.
