Agile and adaptable: Able to make changes as required to address the challenges associated with a constantly evolving business and fintech environment. 8. Outcome-oriented: Focused on outcomes, with specific plans to measure and assess the impact of fintech innovation. At the same time, the company recognizes that ROI may take time to achieve and so has identified a range of other measures and metrics in order to help guide fintech-related decisions. 9. Willing to learn: Open to learning — not only from its own experiences but from the experiences of others both within and outside its industry. 10. Long-term and short-term focused: Able to focus on implementing the long-term, transformative changes required to reshape the work they do and how they do it — while also implementing the incremental changes required to respond to day-to-day challenges. The company has found ways to ensure that any incremental changes do not go against the guiding principles of its long-term fintech strategy. #Blogs #fintech #leader #entrepreneursRead more
