Business and Entity Transformation: Reducing blind spots and increasing speed to market

The past decade has represented a complex period for the financial services industry, both domestically and abroad. Two of the most significant economic events in history, the global financial crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as resulting business pressures, have dramatically reshaped the financial services landscape and reframed market conditions. Disruptive forces, such as digitalization, technological innovation, and rapidly evolving regulatory expectations, have fundamentally shifted the paradigm under which financial institutions operate and have forced organizations to adapt their business models and strategies or risk not being able to compete.

While presenting significant challenges for those unable to adapt, this period has also brought with it opportunities for executives to redefine their  organizations’ business models and to reposition themselves within the broader financial services landscape for the decade ahead. Critical to achieving  success has been the ability of executives to take a centralized, cross-business,  crossjurisdiction, and cross-functional view of their organization’s strategy  enabling agility and innovation. As the financial services industry transitions  from a growth phase into one more uncertain in nature, leaders who  consolidate bjectives into a singular, coherent strategy should be better  positioned to succeed. But where can you start? And how do you succeed?
