As we've always said, we believe that shared services...and as an example, which could be a very large project--or they could break it down into more of a distributed model--we think small business can provide and does provide niche services. Certainly, in my company we hone those skills, as do many of our member companies. We don't try to be all things to all people.
In my case as a service management expert, if our company provided that expertise, in Service Canada, as an example, we could help them define a distributed model, where we could still have the best in class or the centre of excellence that's required to take on such an initiative. We think we can bring in that expertise as well as provide the experts throughout the system.
There's this mentality that the one big company can provide all of that. They may very well be able to do a good job, and we're not saying they can't, but we're just saying that we shouldn't be precluded. We're not trying to be all things to all people. We think we do a very good job in the niches in which we provide the services, and we think there are better strategies to incorporate them through a distributed model.
