About the session

Innovation is key for organizations to evolve, to stay relevant and to prevail in the long-run. Especially in times of great uncertainty, organizations currently tend to rush into agile, design thinking, co-creation and many more actions to address these necessities. However especially in regulatory-driven organizations the will to change and actually changing are two different stories.

Organizations often try to kick-start from zero to hero and thereby hope or assume to overcome “the little things” and structural impediments that matter to people who are supposed to shoulder this transformation. Innovators like us are on the spot to navigate these unchartered waters, not solely but especially at the beginning of this journey and foster a “connecting the dots perspective” to get the ball rolling without fully breaking with established pillars of the organization. It is not only about textbook methods or the best playbook, but rather about building a bridge for innovation to evolve in the organizations mindset and culture.

In this talk, Sascha will share learnings, better practices and insights from the journey of Deutsche WertpapierService Bank AG (dwpbank) and his project experience leading innovation and digitization initiatives in financial services.
