Description

Technology. Deregulation. Privatisation. Globalisation. No financial service business is immune to these forces, as they feed on each other in a whirlwind of change. These changes will require a revolution in the way all organizations are managed, demanding:
  • New competitive strategies
  • Alliances and mergers
  • Business intelligence
  • Risk management
  • Quick responses
Driving strategic change in financial services outlines the important trends and political decisions which have transformed the financial services industry. It examines how organizations are responding to the new industry models by implementing new strategies, new structures and new management systems. Five senior executives describe how they have each helped to create and implement a practical vision for their organizations.
