Key Takeaways from key quotes:

Executing global transformation

  • "The organization, globally, has been working on transformation to be able to reinvest in UPS so that we can put money into places like R&D, and expand and support our customers around the globe."

Increasing front-end interactivity

  • GBS plays a really pivotal role in transformation. In a lot of work that was being done in specific countries- or specific functions- now has been moving into GBS to help us bend to cost curve and be able to increase service levels and our customer interactions.

Focusing on customer-centricity

  • It's still about being able to have your stakeholders and your customers being at the center of the universe. 

Gaining competitive advantage through the Start-Up Zone

  • Plugging and playing with these startups is going to, potentially, yield some really exciting results through partnering with those who really can be very agile in a particular space, and bring something really quickly to market.
