LIBF: Strategic Management & Innovation in Banking (SMIB)

Programme Overview

The banking sector is facing an unprecedented level of change from digital disruption, regulatory developments and changing customer behaviours.

This qualification looks at the strategy ecosystem influencers that drive change and innovation. Strategy is a key issue for all managers and is critical to the performance of an organisations. It is through the development and implementation of effective strategies that organisational goals and objectives are achieved. You will study the concept of strategy, analyse the external and internal factors that affect strategy, drive change as well as understand the risks and threats associated with strategic choices.

Using the knowledge gained from this course, participants will consider the opportunities and challenges digital transformation presents to established and new banking organisations. Participants will look at the strategic ‘ecosystem’ influencers that drive change and innovation. Following the innovation process, participants will use customer journey and service design processes to deliver new products and services and consider the capabilities required to deliver these in the digital age.
