In today's episode, we dive into the world of organisation and performance. We'll explore the crucial role of governance, the importance of collaboration with subject matter experts and lower-level employees, and the significance of clearly-defined roles and responsibilities.

We start by examining governance and how it goes beyond simply determining who should be in charge. Our experts emphasize the need for leaders to take accountability and actively participate in the work. We also explore the role of collaboration with subject matter experts and lower-level employees in creating a robust plan.

Roles and responsibilities play a vital role in organisational success, and we discuss the importance of clearly defining them, including leadership and critical roles. Transparency, accountability, and agility are key principles for effective governance.

We also emphasize the importance of proper governance for implementing cost-reduction strategies. We highlight that swift action is needed, but progress must be meticulously tracked and reported to uphold accountability. Key success factors for sustainable indirect cost reduction are unveiled, including executive leadership sponsorship, incentive alignment, cost transparency, and the involvement of subject matter experts.

Lastly, we confront the challenges presented by rising inflation, and the need for alternative strategies in industries facing regulated pricing environments.

Join us as we explore the crucial topic of organisation and performance, discussing the importance of governance, collaboration, and benchmarks. Together, with Katya Zubareva, Partner at L.E.K.
