After completing our compelling study with Forrester Research that surveyed innovation leaders within financial firms, it became clear that financial services firms are likely to overestimate their digital transformation capabilities. Many firms are struggling to consistently implement the best practices that can steer a company toward change and ultimately a successful innovation strategy.
Our webinar, presented by Forrester’s Alyson Clarke and Magenic’s Financial Services Strategic Partner, Heather Zimmerman, reviews the findings of the research study, then calls out what’s holding companies back and how they can make the leap forward.
In the presentation, Alyson outlines the findings of the research and emphasizes that a critical element is creating a true culture of innovation. While she stresses that this pursuit is much more art than science, there are some strict behaviors to avoid and some to strive towards.
