The services industry continues to grow, answering a commercial need for businesses to outsource non-core activities for reasons of lower cost, operational efficiency and rising service levels/service specialisation. More challenging economic conditions and rising customer needs and expectations require leaders who can navigate complexity and disruption to deliver cost-effective services, without sacrificing excellence, at every level.
