Many leaders around the world are experiencing the challenging speed at which change is happening in and around their businesses. There are many books about leadership, but not specifically targeted to tackle change leadership in relation to technology innovation.
Technology innovation has never been more present and has definitely never been happening at a faster pace than it is today. The changes hitting the Financial Services industry are more prevalent than in any other industry in Australia at the moment. Most (if not all) of the changes bring an element of technology change and as history tells us, technology implementations are rarely smooth and successful.
This book provides four powerful, yet practical and easy to implement steps for leaders in the Financial Services industry to be more on the front foot about managing technology driven change in their business. The book also reflects on the power of great leadership and what it takes to be a great leader of change.
This book will help leaders reflect on the effectiveness of their leadership style during times of change as well as provide them with practical ideas on how to be more involved with technology innovation programs to ensure that business benefits are achieved.
