This article presents the author's views on leadership in corporate culture. When paradigms shift, seeming paradoxes occur. Banking is in a period in which we are seeing a decrease in the number of traditional competitors due to industry consolidation. At the same time, we are seeing an increase in the number of competitors for each customer and relationship. Technology-enabled improvements and a desire to improve earnings stability have led many banks to enter new markets, driving increased competition in local markets. The challenge is to develop new design approaches that allow for rapid transformation and can also be integrated with existing application portfolios.
