7 University of Lisbon 1911 - 2011 2010 UL - CHALLANGE Today's universities are being challenged to cut costs and focus limited resources on core mission activities of teaching, research and public service. Many are looking to achieve these cost reductions in administrative areas. The advantage of reducing expenses in administration is that the fundamental strength and nature of the institution can be protected while efficiency in the "non-value added" functions can still be improved. 7/28 UNICA - OSLO May / 2011

8 Shared Service Center Strategic Objectives of Shared Service Center Implementation Shared Service Centers are not only used to improve cost savings. In our case it also helps the University to respond to the new realities and pursue rapid growth strategies by: Capturing economies of scale; Increasing standardization and use of leading edge technologies; Freeing up employees to spend more time and resources on their core jobs; Providing flexibility to quickly add new business units and expand geographically; Delivering higher quality service and improved satisfaction. Basically to prepare the University for a more efficient management of its resources in order to more easily and quickly achieve an ecological footprint reduction 8/28 UNICA - OSLO May / 2011
