Where are you on the Innovation Maturity Curve?
  • Efforts are ad-hoc, informal, or non-existent

  • Change mandate may be new

  • Need education and internal alignment

Engagement
"Help me get started"
Emphasis
"Help me focus our efforts"
  • Tackling a lot of things at once

  • Often playing catch-up from past underinvestment

  • Need to prioritize competing projects with limited resources

Effectiveness
"Help me get better"
  • Putting innovation into regular practice

  • Current program may be ineffective or stalled

  • Extending and defending core products/services

  • Need experienced resources to get to ROI faster

  • Need curated and screened fintech partners

Efficiency
"Help me do more"
