The importance of strong project management in Agile projects.Some critics still state that agile is disorderly and does not require planning and documentation. What is the reality?

Obsessed with the bottom line? Consumed by operational costs brought on by a myriad of regulations? Obsessed with the customer? Which of these is the odd one out?

Innovate or adapt? Strategies for the next wave of digital banking. Innovation remains a buzzword in banking. But how realistic are genuinely innovative strategies? In more cautious times since the financial crisis, isn’t it wiser to adapt in an incremental way to new regulation, competition, and customer requirements? We believe both innovation and adaptation are required.

In a world dominated by iPhones, Androids, Tablets and need for speed, do bank branches still matter?

It goes without saying that the branch experience has changed drastically over the past century and even more so with significant advances in technology in just the last decade. With walk-in traffic electing to embrace home and mobile banking options, several leading banks are directing their focus and attention on investments that improve the digital experience to complement, not compete with, emerging consumer preferences. Despite the recent trends, we still see opportunity for branches to thrive alongside these non-traditional banking channels in the near-term and long-term.

In this blog series, we will provide perspective formed while working with leading financial institutions on retooling their branch functions and applications to better serve customers. Join us for this series and learn how to recalibrate the discouraging mindset with lessons from leaders.

What trends have dominated the banking industry since April? You do not have to look too far to see that opinion is sharply divided. On the one hand we have witnessed the return to healthy profits with many pundits arguing that banking has turned the corner and that we are seeing the first signs of sustained recovery since 2008. On the other, there are those pointing out that in spite of resurgent balance sheets, we are still in the middle of a fundamental transformation of the sector, where complex regulation is expanding with little or no end in sight; productivity remains below benchmarks set by leaders in other industries; and where investors remain skeptical – although some optimism is returning. All these themes are the subject this Journal issue given the lively debate about the future of the industry, we aim to uncover the real issues and the prominent solutions available to financial markets participants.
