I was invited at the 7th Banking Innovation Forum in Vienna to speak on Innovation. The title of my talk was “Innovation: from tactics to strategy”

I have posted the deck on Slideshare

It was an interesting audience, with most people coming from Central and Eastern Europe, with some interesting case studies from Paolo Barbesino from UniCredit in Italy, Carlos Gomez from Activo bank in Portugal, Marcel Gajdos from Visa Europe Czech Republic/Slovakia, Efigence in Poland, and Wojciech Bolanowski from PKO Bank Polski. I made quite some notes, and if i find the time to make a post on it, i will.

Luckily, my fans are out there to help me. I planned write something about my talk as well, but Wojciech Bolanowski already did that in his great LinkedIn Post here. I have cut and pasted his post in its entirety, as it captures well what i was trying to convey in that presentation. Thank you so much, Wojciech, much appreciated ;-)

Inspire other people, think differently, create spaces where people come alive, ship to customers; as well as bravery, prototyping, events, capabilities and clarity – these are ingredients for successful innovation within big organization; at least according to excellent speaker and Innotribe Co-founder Peter Vander Auwera.

How to innovate in the shadow of behemoth?

marriott

Peter spoke on the first day of 7th Annual Banking Innovation Forum by Uniglobal in Vienna Marriott Hotel (as pictured above). He was keeping the audience extremely focused and interested. The subject was complex and of great importance: how to make really BIG organization innovative. As Peter put it in an outstanding rethoric figure: “how to make babies”. I would like to add: how to make the babies when you are well-known, established, serious and successful one with huge legacy and obliging history.

The questions are (usually) much more important than particular answers, so there is not my goal to report Peters’s solution in details. What I would like to point out is the question itself. Today, in the fast-running world of fin-tech start-ups and quasi-banking innovators almost every bank is big enough to raise this question to itself. Is it enough to inspire other people with your disrutptive ideas? Is such inspiring even possible in organization too big to change itself spontaneously? What could possibly happen if you think differently from dominant thinking styles?

Obviously, being innovative within mammoth-size organization is a big challenge and requires specific attitude and social skills. As I understood one of the Peter’s suggestion is to create appropriate team which become the centre and engine of the process. The brave, capable team with clearly set culture of “rather be failing frequently than never trying new things” to quote Peter’s presentation. Some important tools to do so are special workspaces, integrating events and ways of building true alignment.

Bravery – the slide of the presentation. Source: Uniglobal

How to gain executives’ support?

The presentation was full of insider stories with some of them concerning interactions between innovators and the board members. Those were a great lesson of struggle which, I think, at least to some extend, any innovator should expect and be prepared for. The very useful take-out was about prototyping and commercial launching of innovative products. The prototype should be, according to Peter’s best practice, as vivid and identical with the final product as possible. No more “Power Point Prototypes” unless you would like to fail. What’s even more – prototyping is just a step to the real strategic goal – to deliver real, commercial product and give it to customers. “Go out of the sandbox” is another great statement I heard from the speaker. Indeed, today environment of fast growing and alternating product propositions demand being “on market”. The Grand Jury of customers has no time to screen through pilots or prototypes; every company should be ready to risk and show its innovation as soon as it is delivered. In my opinion this is extremely important to realize. Shipment to customers what is already prototyped is the crucial part of execution process in innovation. I feel it is striking and true, therefore I tweeted this immediately with hashtag #BAIF2015!

What about the reluctant middle-level-managers?

The next splendid remark is about mid-level managers’ attitude toward change. For them the main goal is “too keep any changes far away of the plan”. It is understandable and rational. For manager’s KPIs are target-related, they try to keep organization on the course to achieve them. However, any innovation process within organization creates the risk of change, which, possibly, could alternate plans and goals. This is the real challenge – to execute innovation in organization which mainly consists of medium-level managers. And execution itself is much more difficult and lasts much longer than whole creative process of gathering ideas, evangelization, internal promotion etc. What Peter stressed, and I agree fully, is thatin context of big organizations idea management process is easier and shorter than its incubation and implementation. In start-ups world there is exactly the opposite relation.

Start-ups as indicators

Start-ups in financial sector (dubbed fintech recently) occupied a lot of Peter’s presentation as he is involved in the well-known Innotribe@Sibos program. The event has attracted more than 340 participants this year. It is quite nice sample to show what’s going on in innovation. With four continental semi-finals (NYC, London, Cape Town and Singapore) it gives global overview and prime selection of activities. This could be a useful indicator for big companies to track the start-up trends and pick up something valuable from. For example in 2014 the leading areas of start-up activity were (despite a broad category of corporates/business services) investment management, lending, big data and personal financial management. It is a clear message to banks: there is innovation coming to your core businesses and it is technology-driven.

This post is inspired by presentation shown on of 7th Annual Banking Innovation Forum ; there is another one of this category, in case you are interested:

I have been relatively silent on my blog, tweets and other social media. The reason is focus. Focus on preparing with the team another exciting experience at Innotribe Sibos, this year in Boston from 29 Sep till 2 Oct 2014.

Less than 2 months from D-day, we are in full build up. We are in good shape, and preparations are in full swing. We are now at a stage where we have detailed minute-by-minute session scripts for all sessions, and are at a rate of several speaker preparation calls per week. And we have for each of our 17 sessions a detailed floor plan like this one:

SESSION 002 Future of Money

 

Here are some numbers: 4 days, 17 sessions, 2 locations, 50+ speakers, 10+ moderators, 10+ instigators, 9 startups, 6 innovators, 7 coaches, 4 Sponsors, 7 technical crew, 6 facilitation crew, 12 cameras, 7 screens, 3 stages, 2 bridges, 4 pieces of artwork, 1 bitcoin ATM machine, 1 skyline.

When it all comes together, it will look a bit like this:

Camera 04b

I have some other surprises that I will document in a later blog post.

But don’t be mistaken: Innotribe Sibos is about content, content, and more content.

For the content some of the main subjects covered, see my previous post https://petervan.wordpress.com/2014/06/20/innotribe-sibos-2014-building-bridges/ To summarize:

  • Day-1 is all about cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ripple, ColoredCoins, etc) from all angles: vision, regulation, disruption, and transformation.
  • Day-2 covers “Network effects”: networked organizations, platform thinking, eco-system thinking
  • Day-3 gets you into Innovation Capabilities and the exciting Grand Finale of the 2014 Innotribe Startup Challenge
  • Day-4 articulates our ambition to convene all significant players of the FinTech Innovation Ecosystem

Since my last post several new speakers and moderators have been added, for example:

  • Yoni Assi (CEO eToro and Board member Israel Bitcoin Foundation)
  • Dirk Haubrich (Head of Consumer Protection and Financial Innovation, European Banking Authority EBA, via Skype)
  • Dan Marovitz (CEO Faculty of 1000 Ltd, former Managing Director, Head of Product Management, Global Transaction Banking Deutsche Bank)
  • Anne Shere Wallwork (Senior Counselor for Strategic Policy, Office of Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes – U.S. Department of the Treasury)

And on day-4 we have gathered the top captive funds in one session starting on 2 Oct at 09:30 am, and moderated by Tony Fish, Founder AMF Ventures:

  • Vanessa Colella, Director Citi Ventures
  • Christophe Chazot, New Group Head of Innovation, HSBC
  • Derek White, Chief Design Officer, Barclays
  • Matteo Rizzi, General Partner, Sberbank SBT Venture Capital
  • Julio Faura, Head of R&D and Innovation, Banco Santander
  • Manual Silva Martinez, Vice-President BBVA Ventures

I will do a separate blog on day-4 later, as that will be a very exceptional day.

Our speakers are thought leaders and top innovators. We have 7 out of the FinTech top-40 http://thetally.efinancialnews.com/2014/06/fintech-focus/ and 3 out of the Bank Innovation “top-30 innovators to watch” http://www.bankinnovation.net/2014/07/2014-innovators-to-watch-30-executives-shaping-the-industry/ secured for this yearly gathering.

And in addition, we are building bridges and sharing speakers with Technology Forum, Investment Management Forum, Markey Infrastructures Forum, Standards Forum.

Full detailed program, with all speakers confirmed is now available on sibos.com here: http://www.sibos.com/conference/conference-programme/2014?field_session_stream_tid%5B%5D=203&op=Filter

Super-excited with big kudos to the Innotribe team, the event producers GPJ and facilitators Collective Next.

Peter Thiel is always good for some controversy. Usually, I am a big fan of him, despite his libertarian opinions. But this time I have to disagree. Because it seems that he hates business suits, to a point that he does not want to invest on startup CEO wearing a suit. In Business Insider he says:

“Maybe we still would have avoided these bad investments if we had taken the time to evaluate each company’s technology in detail,” Thiel says in his book. “But the team insight — never invest in a tech CEO that wears a suit — got us to the truth a lot faster.”

But look at what he wears himself in that article!

Peter Thiel in Suite

Maybe it’s just a promotional stunt for Thiel’s new book, “Zero To One,” but even so, I believe it re-enforces polarization and avoids inclusion.

Indeed, what do vestimentairy aspects have to do with content? I even saw a post (hopefully jokingly) suggesting that at next FinTech innovation events no suites would be allowed. What a joke! I don’t think this works.

I am more and more convinced it is our responsibility to build bridges, and create inclusions instead of accentuating the differences.

I have heard similar vestimentairy comments about people within the FinTech innovation community saying things like: “he/she has not enough “streetcred” to be part of our community.”

What a crap, this whole “Streetcred” versus “Suites”!

The beauty is in the diversity and being able and willing to go beyond simplistic categorization of exclusion. Old world is about exclusion. New world is about inclusion. The new world is all about building bridges. About staying away from polarized positions. Because I believe the beauty is in between the extremes.

Somebody reacted to me: “but then you will end up with grey!” and I replied: “No, I don’t think so, I think we will end up with a rainbow of colours”.

At Innotribe Sibos 2014 in Boston (29 Sep – 2 Oct), our tagline is “Building Bridges”. In our facilitated sessions, we will use voting/scoring cards labeled “Ties” and “Tattoos”. But not to accentuate the differences, but to bring people together, help them understand each other’s point of view, and agreeing and documenting our intentions for progress.

The secret is in the inclusion of Ties and Tattoos

Futurist and past Innotribe member, Heather Schlegel aka @heathervescent, has announced an ambitious project: The Future of Money TV Series. Happy to offer her a guest post on my Petervan blog. We had great times together, and she is worth your attention.
 
While working with Innotribe, Heather created 3 scenario films and 2 documentaries: http://www.youtube.com/user/innotribefilms. Happy to let Heather explain herself what she is up to with this new project:
FoM Heather

Heather: “While working for Innotribe, I was struck by the impact my films had on people. When I showed them at SXSW and other conferences, people would come up to me afterwards and tell me how the visions in my films changed their perspective. Over and over I saw people’s ideas about the future change after watching my films. It’s this response that inspired me to develop a TV series around the future of money.

 

The Future of Money TV Series explores the evolution of money by interviewing experts in financial innovation and showing futuristic reenactments of plausible scenarios based on facts and theories. I developed the TV series to share positive visions with a global audience to increase optimism about the future.

 

An international distributor green lit the project in May and has agreed to distribute the series internationally IF I can raise $35K to shoot the expert interviews. To raise the money, I launched a Kickstarter. I need your support to make it happen. I’ve spent years of love, sweat and tear on this project. Please back it.

 

This is her first Kickstarter and while it’s off to an excellent start – raising $12,000 of her $35,000 goal – your support is critical.

 

Watch the teaser and back the project – any level helps:

It took us about a week to recuperate from another “Grand Cru edition” of Innotribe at Sibos 2013 in Dubai. This edition would not have been possible without the dedication of the speakers, the production team of Georges P. Johnson, the volunteers from other SWIFT departments – we call them “our heroes” –, the Sibos team and the support of  Head of Sibos Sven Bossu @svenbossu, and last but not least the Innotribe team itself: a big thank you to all of you!

team2013

The awesome Innotribe team in Dubai, from left to right: Innes, Ashley, Muche, Mela, Ioana, Domi, Dana, Peter, and Nek.

The 2013 has been been very well covered by press, special editions of magazines like the Informilo and HP publications, the Sibos Issues editions and of course on Innotribe.com.

So, I won’t do a chronological overview of what happened in the different sessions, but rather try to synthesize the overall experience. Because that’s what Innotribe at Sibos is all about: memorable immersive learning experiences.

Our design principles were two-fold: staying away from polarizing positions, and building capabilities, especially in the area of non-linear thinking. Indeed, this approach was needed to cope with the velocity of change that we are witnessing in and outside our industry.

space

However, the word “change” does probably not reflect the scale and impact of what we are going through. Some our speaker-igniters called for the application of “network warfare” techniques to be able to stay agile and resilient in this environment. Others suggested that our change is evolving from simple “disruption” to plain “phasing”.

We also started measuring what is worth measuring. Robert Kennedy was quoted: “GDP measures everything, except that which makes life worthwhile”. What are the intangible assets that will help us better evaluate the full holistic worth of organizations and institutions, both internal and external intangibles? I believe we are seeing the first attempts here to start applying systems thinking in the context of the financial landscape.

Our 2013 Startup Challenge resulted in two winners to be truly proud of: KlickEx, Top Startup 2013, a regulated clearing service for Central and Commercial Banks, and Waratek, Top Innovator 2013, cutting infrastructure costs using patented Java Virtualization. For more on the Startup Challenge, see blog post by Nektarios.

As if our main Innotribe program was not enough, our team designed together a wonderful Tunnel-experience; you can really consider it as a second program within the Innotribe event.

tunnel

And just to go the extra mile, our team and speakers were also involved in the design and delivery of parallel sessions in the Standards Forum, the Diversity session, the sessions for the Chairmen of the National Member Groups, and the “Young Leaders” session that is looking into the future of Sibos itself.

We must have done something right, looking at the raving comments everywhere ;-)

Daniel Erasmus from Digital Thinking Network sent us a very kind mail:

“Congrats on another successful Innotribe, the maturing of the facilitation team, development of the formats and anchoring inside the SWIFT community. As always I budgeted too much time to spend the whole week with the “tribe” and loved every minute of it! Not only have you managed to make it interesting for the attendees, but also for the speakers. That is a high bar for such a salty list ;-)”

And Haydn Shaughnessy, author of “The Elastic Enterprise” commented:

“I hope you have recovered from the rigors of Innotribe/Sibos – which I found the best run conference I have attended”

Thank you, thank you for this encouraging feedback. It is the result of a year’s preparation by the team, weekly conference calls with the production company starting four months before D-Day, many prep calls with the speakers, and loads of blood, sweat and tears behind the scenes. Innotriber Dominik tweeted oh so rightly about the warzone backstage.

tweet domi

backstage

 

As in all previous years, this undertaking is an emotional, mental, and physical drain/test for the team. For about 10 days on-site, many of us stayed in the catacombs of the conference center from 7:30am till 2:30am. It forces the team to go through the ups and downs of working together very intensely for more than a week in the same physical space. The whole point is to go through this together. And we come out of it together, all with our own scarves and plumes. We had some guests and newcomers in the team: the impact on them is deep. But “Once been there, you don’t want to go back”. For some of us, it will be difficult to go back to our “normal” working environments. Innotribe is a drug: that is good and scary at the same time, as many of us neglect our own physical and emotional well being.

For me, it’s my 5th edition, so I know more or less what’s coming. Delivering something like Innotribe at Sibos is like giving birth to a big baby. It also comes with some form of Post-Natal depression. I coped better with it compared to previous years, but am getting aware how much we ask from our colleagues and collaborators, and that some post-event sanity is needed.

We put the bar very high. We want to let our audience discover new insights in an immersive learning experience. We want to touch people in an authentic way. We want to create intensities, insightful, rich and with serenity. We also wanted to reflect this authenticity in our closing plenary. No gimmicks, but sincere, tender, kind and humanizing reflections on a week that rocked you all intellectually and emotionally.

We believe the tone of our closing was spot-on. Testimony if this is well reflected in the article on page 8 of the Sibos Issues Wrap-Up edition http://www.sibos.com/docs/SibosIssues_wrapup.pdf:

“Okay, so it’s time for the Innotribe closing plenary, which is called ‘Around the campfire’. We come into the Innotribe Space, which is lit with a dim amber glow from above, and we sit down on one of the beanbags that surrounds the “camp fire” – a stack of Innotribe’s decision-making crystal balls. Or should we take one of the chairs circled around the beanbags? There’s faint, meditative music in the background, and on the display screens, a photograph of young boys, their faces lit by a real campfire, out late at night, sharing an adventure. This is Innotribe. Anything could happen. What happens is that Innotribe’s Innes MacLeod picks up a guitar. He strums a few notes, starts to sing. “The dawn is breaking, the light is shining through.” Mr MacLeod is a talented musician. There are crayons. Markers. Postcards. The song ends, and J P Rangaswami,  chief scientist, Salesforce, comes forward into the circle to give us his impressions of  Innotribe’s week in Dubai.”

innes

This edition also felt different, with Matteo and Kosta not being part of the team anymore. We missed them, but are proud of the new opportunities they are onboarding and wishing them well from the deepest of our hearts.

But even without them, we are bullish about the future of Innotribe. We also want to ensure them that what we will protect and nurture the soul of what we started together. Reflecting back on the first five years of Innotribe, I would like to summarize that soul as follows:

“Innotribe’s soul is about people taking agency. Innotribe is a movement. It’s a culture, emerging from some specific behaviors. It’s a tribe of enthusiastic people hungry for change. Positive change. Not an anarchist tribe, but a tribe of people who care for the companies they work for and want them to succeed in the 21st century of hyper-connectivity. Innotribe is deeply value and purpose driven. It has an ambition for progress, looking forward. We fight mediocrity, and applaud critical thinking. Innotribe is a reflection zone. Where new ideas are tossed, curated, discussed, made actionable. We want to give the best of ourselves. For doing good. For creating human connections between people. For letting people discover their hidden talents and powers. For taking people on a path of discovery, individual and collective relevance. We want everybody in the company and industry to think, to be and act responsible to increase value and wealth creation. Moving from ego-systems and creating eco-systems filled with meaning. Innotribe is a place where belonging is more important than fitting in. Innotribe is about leading from the emergent future, in support and co-creation with our markets and regions. Innotribe is a tribe for leading by being.”

graffity team

Just after the SibosTV “summary of the week”, JP synthesized the week very well. What he had seen at Innotribe was human integration, infrastructure integration, and innovation integration.

“As human beings, we came together well,” says Rangaswami. “By the time it came to innovation, I was seeing a coming together I don’t think I have ever seen before. That suits could stand on the same stage as jeans…”

But let’s be careful not to judge our work only on these externalities, as I believe the “jeans and suites” is a signal for human integration at a much deeper level that the vestimentary one.

“There is an institutional ownership of infrastructure by the incumbent. That set of conversations seemed to involve a separation from the consumer infrastructure represented by mobile tools. We’re getting there on values and innovation, but we haven’t got there on infrastructure.”

For me, the biggest insight of the week was to see the interest of bankers in topics such as creative thinking and visual expression. Like in previous year, the critics challenged us programming this sort of topics. They proved to be wrong: there is indeed a great hunger in our community to re-connect with our wholeness, our oneness, and our full human being. We all are growing a higher sensory awareness and maturity. In case you did not know yet: bankers are humans too, and that is probably our biggest hope for the future.

Last word to J P Rangaswami with some hints for next year’s Boston edition:

“For too many years, the talk has been about the business case. There are two ways you can do this: cut costs or increase revenue. Think of the untapped markets, the financially excluded. There is an abundance of new ways to connect to those markets. Use them. Go for growth!”

empty room

As the dust of the 2013 edition has settled (above a picture of the room one day after the event, as if it never happened), the quest for 2014 has already started…

Once again, we start from an empty page, and since a couple of weeks already, the architect’s brushes and pencils are painting on the blank canvas, eager to be inspired by your feedback and enthusiasm. See you all in Boston, 29 sep – 2 Oct 2014.

Here is the third weekly update related to our 5th edition of Innotribe at Sibos in Dubai from 16-19 Sep 2013.

As you probably know by now, we’ve designed our programme like a metro map. Just like the underground or subway, it’s up to you to decide which “track” to follow, depending on your expertise, interests, learning objectives, and availability.

Innotribe_TubeMap-01

In this week’s post, we’d like to walk you through the Big Data Track at Innotribe@Sibos 2013.

Big Data track

Big Data is an industry trend that the Innotribe team has been monitoring for some time now. We had session about Big Data at Innotribe Sibos Toronto in 2011 and Innotribe Sibos Osaka in 2012.

People, businesses and devices are hyper-connected through highly pervasive networks, creating unimaginable amounts of information. What if we could tap into the intelligence and insights buried in these networks to devise better strategies for growth? This new environment will require extraordinary insight and adaptability.

This year, we’ll explore how you and your organization can derive new insights through Network Analytics from all the data that surrounds us.

Toolkit: Planning for Unpredictable Futures

Location: Innotribe Space

Day: Tuesday 17 Sep 2013

Time: 09:30 – 10:30

Another “Toolkit” session: an immersive learning experience to help you internalize the basic principles of scenario thinking in support of better future planning. This session will lead into the Network Insights session later that day.

scenario

Daniel Erasmus – one of the world’s most renowned experts on Scenario Thinking – will give an in-depth introduction to this methodology that helps making better decisions and sense of an unpredictable future.

After the intro, Fabian will relate this back to why this is relevant for our community.

We have designed a practical interactive exercise to familiarize the audience with scenarios of high impact, but low probability; this is all about getting comfortable with uncertainties in business.

Speakers:

  • Daniel Erasmus, Owner, Digital Thinking Network. Daniel brings the unique combination of scenario thinking and big data.
  • Fabian VandenReydt, Head of Securities Markets and Core Business Development at SWIFT

Big Data creates network insights for growth – Part-1 – What is Data?

Location: Innotribe Space

Day: Tuesday 17 Sep 2013

Time: 12:30 – 14:00

This is a highly interactive session, where we will let the audience discover the expanded definitions of what we mean with “data”. We will cover following dimensions:

  • What do we call data?
  • How do we see/visualise data?
  • How do we analyse data, how do we draw conclusions?
  • How do we layer data and apply pattern recognition?

We will close this part-1 highlighting the domains of applicability for our business: Fraud, Risk Management, Growth opportunities, etc. We will then move into part-2 about tools that can help spot us unknown growth opportunities or unknown threats.

Big Data creates network insights for growth – Part-2 – Overview of tools for growth.

Location: Innotribe Space

Day: Tuesday 17 Sep 2013

Time: 14:30 – 16:00

After having set the scene in the two previous sessions (“Planning for Unpredictable Sessions from 09:30 – 10:30am” and “What is Data? From 12:30 – 14:00pm”), we will demonstrate how different analytics and big data tools can be used to identify growth opportunities or unknown threats.

Newsconsole

In a very engaging story telling format, you will see demos, videos, animations and other explorations of the latest state-of-the-art tool for big data analytics and visualization. This is a high-paced session with 7 different showcases.

Speakers for Part-1 and Part-2 are:

  • Neil Bartlett, CTO And Head of Development of Risk Analytics, IBM
  • Daniel Erasmus, Owner, Digital Thinking Network
  • Matthew Gordon, Forward Deployed Engineer, Palantir
  • Walid Jelassi, Transformation Consultant, HP
  • Simon Small, Founding Director, Arria
  • Kimmo Soramaki, Founder & CEO, Financial Network Analytics
  • Michael Warner, CEO, Quantum4D
  • Special commentator: Fabian Vandenreydt

More information about the Innotribe@Sibos 2013 programme can be found in our programme Brochure (PDF flyer), on Sibos.com and of course Innotribe.com. The full Innotribe 2013 speaker list with bios is here.
