Enterprise Architecture and Business Process Management as enablers for Shared Services.

Jan Lategan

The presentation describes the journey that Nedbank’s Corporate Shared Services management team undertook when designing and implementing a new business model.

A number of the bank’s payment back-office functions were moved into a single management structure during 2005/6 and there was a need to introduce a business model that would make the best use of the functional competencies from each of the areas.

The discussion will touch on how the model, initially aligned to products, was changed to become structured into functional components. Jan will elaborate on the difficulties they faced when working out “what belonged where” and how it was decided through applying Enterprise Architecture. The presentation emphasises the importance of aligning strategy with that of the larger organisation, and describes the process of collecting the required information in order to make the correct decisions.
