Building High-Performing Engineering Teams for GCC Success
Once regarded as a support function, technology has evolved rapidly in recent years and is now integral to the core of every business as companies embrace digital innovation to meet new consumer expectations.
Historically viewed as an attractive source of ‘cost arbitrage,’ the raison d'etre of Global Capability Centers (GCCs) has changed to one of ‘skills arbitrage’ or ‘intellectual arbitrage,’ with more recent GCCs set up to deliver tech skills at scale, drive product innovation at a cost advantage and emerge into Global Innovation Centers.
GCCs need strong, dynamic, agile and high-performing engineering teams to enable the future fit agenda of their parent organizations. In this eBook, Thoughtworks and ANSR draw from our collective experience working with GCCs, enterprises and startups across the globe to bring together best practices and success stories.
The eBook explores five tenets of building high-performing engineering teams that boost GCC success:
● Alignment on business vision
● Adaptive leadership with autonomy
● Connected communities
● Distinctive talent with a mindset for innovation
● GCC design that accelerates the digital journey at HQ
