“Financial institutions are constantly in search of speed, adaptation, and customer engagement. In an industry that must respond to changing customer behaviors, those characteristics – speed to market, the ability to adapt, and a deep understanding of the customer – are what separates the best from the rest. The means to embody those elements in day-to-day business is through Agile ways of working. We have many Efma members who have implemented Agile and realize the benefits of these new ways of working on a daily basis. These institutions are failing fast, learning fast, and adapting to the market with a purpose. In today’s COVID and, hopefully, post-COVID world this has only risen in importance.”
The report conducted surveys with 50 transformational managers in the financial industry and also conducted more than a dozen indepth interviews. These interviews included financial organizations such as Akbank, AXA, Banca Sella, ING and more.
“We are pleased to have partnered with Efma on this important topic. Many financial institutions have been the trail-blazers when it comes to implementing Agile at Scale outside of the tech and it is great to see that so many have come so far. The need to even focus more on business agility, purposeful organisation and engaged teams is more present now, then ever before. At ADAPTOVATE, we have worked with some of the biggest financial organisations in the world on their Agile Journeys and it is great to see our insights being validated in this survey.Alex Rebkowski, Partner and Manager Director, ADAPTOVATE
We are seeing in real-time a drastic change in leadership buy-in since the pandemic and since the growth of forces like defi, metaverse and AI. Therefore, we expect that in the coming months and years, financial institutions who have yet to champion Business Agility will embark on rapid deployment of agile transformations at scale, while companies who are well on their journey will continue to test & learn and grow.”
