• Do not dictate our bank partners’ strategies. We help our partners set their strategies; translate them into distinctive design approaches for process and infrastructure development; and constantly test emerging opportunities against their strategic objectives.
  • Make each strategic design unique. Different strategic directions require widely different approaches and result in totally distinctive outcomes.
  • Constantly and rigorously focus on the customer.
  • Communicate to leadership and internal participants exceptionally.
  • Do better things, not the same things at lower cost.
  • Done right, strategic design can invigorate an organization; done wrong, it can stall progress.
