Nedbank Group: Leadership and Adaptive Space for Digital Innovation
A team of analysts at Nedbank Group (Nedbank) had generated a solution to an important client-centered issue, but the solution was not welcomed by the operations team. A business executive at Nedbank created an opportunity for the creative design team and operations team to collaborate. A solution was successfully implemented in 2019 and the executive and analysts' team leader were summoned to present their ideas at a business banking executive committee meeting to demonstrate how their initiatives supported the bank's strategic direction. Would the executive committee agree to invest capital in new ways of work to move the bank forward on its digital strategy? Caren Scheepers is affiliated with University of Pretoria.
