The finance sector and specifically banks, have been under a lot of pressure over the past years. Alongside the market challenges such as low interest rates, we’re seeing hundreds of new Fintech challengers emerge with over $10 Billion collective funding per year.
These challenges are forcing banks to make tough strategic decisions. At the start of 2016, we worked together with Belfius PCB to help them do that.
The result of the project was:
A clear view on how the future of Public, Social and Corporate Banking may develop.
A strategy to play a strong role in that future.
A list of concrete projects to start working towards it.
Soon after we returned to guide Belfius PCB in the development of these business plans, to help them turn these into speedboats alongside the corporate mothership.
We sat down with Dirk Gyselinck, member of the management committee, to talk about the process and the challenges of transformation.
After several years, our book has been sold in over 45 countries and we’re proud of that! Thank you everyone for your support, we hope you’ve already taken the first steps in your transformation.
We recently released the new edition with several new chapters on “The mindset of your Challengers”, “How to service different generations as an organisation” and “How to build your Transformation Fleet”.
Whether you call it disruptive or ‘plain and simple’ innovative, Ghent-based law firm deJuristen definitely knows how to keep things interesting. They not only approach the ‘old’ legal business in new, fascinating ways, but also keep an eye out for different opportunities that may seem a bit odd for a law firm at first. When they introduced a new marketplace for consumers and local farmers to connect with each other (Mijnboer.be), we just had to reach out for a chat with Karel-Jan Vercruysse, partner at deJuristen to talk about their company, disruption and the digital transformation of the legal profession.
