In The Banker Viewpoint Series videos, we discuss different approaches to innovation and transformation, as well as the importance of creating a culture that encourages new ways of thinking and experimentation.

    Banks across the globe have spent years on digital transformation programmes, but many haven’t made significant progress on execution. Those that have can deliver superior customer experiences, as well as be operationally nimble.

    The Banker Viewpoint Series is sponsored by Publicis Sapient but independently edited.

    In discussion:

    What sets digital leaders apart from the rest? Despite having clear digital transformation strategies, many banks feel that they haven’t made significant progress.
