Challenges the bank faces
Trend: decreasing number of banks and falling margins (less than 4%)
Consolidation of leading banks,
according to pessimistic prognoses, 65-80% of small and medium-sized banks will disappear in the next
10 years (McKinsey (Yaakov & Associates, World Bank)
New players on the market: competition
outside of banks
Capture of banking target audience, marginal segments by fintech, marketplaces, retailers (cases of Ozon, Yandex, Lamoda)
New approaches are needed to maintain market positions
Classic banking tools are ineffective in today's competition, it is necessary to introduce a new market standard - a framework for initiative management
The problem you will solve
Falling behind in the competition
with IT and fintech companies
Fintech, marketplaces and retailers are taking away the audience inflow and marginal services from banks. The bank needs to find a new approach in order not to lose in the competition.
Long TTM for new products and services
On average, Time to market of the bank's products and services ranges from 6 to 12 months with benchmarking from 3 weeks to 3 months. This rate does not meet the market demands.
Outdated products not demanded by customers
The bank's product range is outdated, products are not in demand. There is no clarity regarding which product the bank's resources should be spent on.
Shortage of digital
and product specialists
The bank lacks a sufficient number of Product owners and other specialists with required competencies, it is expensive to attract them from the market, and it takes time to adapt them.
Competitors have the most marginal segments
The bank receives clients with low average margin of 4%, clients with margins up to 21% are taken by competitors, the bank fails to identify and attract such client segments.
Struggling to stand out, to find a competitive advantage
The bank lacks competencies in creating new types of USP based on competition not only with banks but also with other market players, working with distribution channels
