Proactively Anticipating Change in Financial Services

Thursday, July 19, 2018

Change management in the finance industry is normally approached through reactive means. In this session, you will learn how to proactively anticipate the six forces of change that are most present in the finance community:

  1. customers/clients
  2. competition
  3. technology
  4. leadership
  5. government/regulations
  6. employees.

In Scott Pitts' webcast on August 9, he will dive into these six areas of change origination and reveal what responses work as best practices to implement, and what responses to abandon.

You will then learn:

  • how to implement an innovative approach toward problem solving and
  • gain a competitive edge for change initiatives above other financial institutions.
