Change is happening rapidly in financial services. Disruption driven by digitalization and advanced computing mean that entire departments may need to be retrained or repurposed. As bigger companies acquire others and smaller companies merge to become bigger companies, the teams that are the lifeblood of these businesses are affected. Not having a robust change management plan in play is extremely dangerous. Who can afford to lose key people or demotivate their teams?
