Building an International Financial Services Firm

Strategy making in many financial services firms is dominated by the desire to control risks, steer resources into profitable areas, and make incremental adjustments to the existing business model. Innovative strategic thinking that penetrates the organization from the lower ranks of the firm is rare. The narrow regulatory framework and inflexible IT systems often contribute to a fairly centralized approach to strategic decision-making in financial services firms. This chapter describes how financial services firms can accelerate their strategic metabolisms and fuel strategic thinking processes with energy. It shows how strategy processes should be designed for firms to lead to unique strategic positions.

Keywords:   financial services firms, strategic management, strategic decision-making
