Banks and other businesses maybe feel that changes are required but they are not sure what changes are required.

Idea that changes are required because of digital is not very convincing because it is not clear how those technologies will help to improve business results.

Mantra that customers want digital (what is digital and how that helps improve profitability of each customer?) and therefore banks need to be agile (how agile? What is criteria and measure?) from my point of view does not provide enough justification or clear and strong case for radical changes and  heavy investments. That looks more like gambling rather than mature forecast or estimation.

These days, when business profitability is not that great as before, deeper understanding of innovation, optimisation and modernisation projects and more careful planning of projects and results is the key to success.
