Innovation is the new Fashion. Every BFSI organization worth its name is currently busy creating hackathons and incubation hubs to accelerate their businesses. However, the most successful among them are those where the leaders drive innovation with their vision. Engagements with fintechs have mostly hit road blocks mainly in understanding compliance norms and lack of standardization for innovations. This results in long evolution and experimentation cycles. Nevertheless, standardization is slowly trickling in globally as efficient processes are now getting in place to both facilitate and guide innovations. There is an obvious dilemma – if these innovations are guided, how can they be disruptive? But the mega saving in time and resources involved in experimentation and evaluation makes these sentinels very important. For banks, the need for innovations are mostly characterized by the business DNA as well as the needs of the captive target audience, whether it is SMEs, Retail or Corporate customers. They have the challenge of legacy while pursuing a course of innovation. ROIs too have been a cause for concern. While most of the innovations are in fact short term incremental approaches or work around ideas, forward looking organizations are now seriously adopting a long term, vision-based approach.

This is the next wave where the leaders are going to make a difference by combining human-centric approach with design thinking. This fusion of technology innovation and visionary business ideas is something that creates the transformation to inspire business leaders to invest in these innovations.

The key theme for Finnoviti and Technoviti 2018 is ‘Vision-driven Innovation’. While there are ample potholes on this path, the long term vision is what will drive the enthusiasm and the efforts to achieve performance. To transform is the key path to perform and let us involve ourselves with newer and emerging methods of transformation at Finnoviti 2018 with the ‘Vision-driven Innovation’.
