Today's business environment is global, complex, agile, and influenced by the digital revolution, which means it is accelerating. To keep up, many multinational corporations are seeking to restructure their service delivery models and to integrate global in-house centers (GICs) in more expansive ways.
Introducing the Global In-house Center (GIC) Capability Maturity Index
Over the last few years, more than 750 multinational corporations have established Global In-house Centers (GICs) in India1 in an effort to leverage the nation’s highly skilled, low-cost talent pool to reduce cost of ownership and to serve fast-growing global and regional markets. Historically, the maturity of these GICs has evolved gradually, taking years to progress from dedicated centers set up for one or two functions to multifunction centers providing value-added services both locally and globally.
GICs are being challenged to rapidly evolve their operating models to move up the value chain. As such, they are increasingly transitioning from being pure play cost centers to becoming centers of excellence delivering innovation, quality, and strategic value.
To address these questions, and others like them, Deloitte in collaboration with the Indian School of Business (ISB), developed the GIC Capability Maturity Index (CMI).
The GIC CMI is composed of two parts, a curve that illustrates the progressive capability maturity levels for a GIC and a framework that gauges the maturity of participating GICs across the key areas of strategy, control, coordination, talent, and operational performance.
