Rob Kerner, Former Head of Innovation Strategy, Personal & Business Banking at Royal Bank of Scotland
“Taking your transformation journey to the next level”
About The Summit
Rob recently left RBS where he was responsible for managing the innovation portfolio for Personal and Business Banking. He is now concentrating on working with companies to improve their Innovation functions, public speaking and strategic advice to investment firms in the tech space.
Rob will be discussing the ‘Current Landscape In Banking Transformation’ (Internal Overview) with a focus on answering the following questions;
-What does digital transformation really mean? People often speak about having an “innovative culture”, but what does that really mean? Companies need to unpick the elements that make up a successful innovation programme to optimise the speed true nature of new ideas.
-How do you decide what are the dimensions on which you need to transform? Companies are getting completely confused by all the hype and latest fads in this space. They need to focus their efforts on the task at hand, getting the right tech into customer’s hands as fast as possible.
-What are the key success factors? How are these teams being measured? Too heavy control and companies risk stifling innovation and speed, but too light of controls and the organisation’s risk culture will kill projects. What are the right metrics and at what level should they be used?
-What are the main pitfalls & how to avoid them? What have I seen from my days in a complex organisation that is under tremendous pressure to innovate.
