Reengineering the Bank

Reengineering the Bank helps bankers evaluate their market, operations and, most important, their customers. This guide also discusses the balance sheet, strategies to maximize value, and provides the tools to restructure the program. Now is the perfect time to act: record spreads and profits in the industry can help to fund a forward-thinking restructuring effort. Competition is increasingly fierce, smart and too close to home to ignore. Author Paul Allen, the chairman and founder of Aston Associates, has been involved in bank reengineering processes long before the term itself was coined. His client banks achieve outstanding levels for efficiency and profitability-and enjoy increased shareholder value.

Achieving Superior Performance After the Perfect Storm

In this collection of published articles, we present a plethora of insight for today’s bank CEOs and for the 2.1 million or so bankers who are their colleagues. The collection is in some cases updated to reflect our latest thinking on a number of ‘hot topics’. In other cases, the original work is presented, as the core ideas still carry tremendous impact. While the topics range widely, the observant reader will notice that our beliefs and aspirations are weaved like a red thread through every piece. This gives us confidence that we do not only do as we say, but that our approach has withstood the test of time as we have carried the same message consistently and confidently for more than twenty years.
