"The key issue with innovation is not haste, it's patience," says Malcolm Gladwell, a staff writer for The New Yorker who wrote bestsellers such as "The Tipping Point" and "Blink."
"The innovation race is not to the swift; the innovation race is to the patient," he says.
"When trying to achieve success, we tend to rely on logic," says Frans Johansson, author and CEO of The Medici Group. "But logic doesn't give you a competitive advantage. If you rely on logic, you and all your competitors will end up in the same place."
Credit unions have an opportunity to expand their small business lending to fill a space vacated by banks, says Charles Wendel, president of Financial Institutions Consulting. "Following the recession, banks have created a very narrow box within which they'll lend. "That has created an opportunity for other lenders to come in and make those loans."
Speakers at the BAI 2013 Retail Delivery Conference include retail banking executives, global technology leaders and industry analysts. The event took place in the Bellco Theatre at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver.
Debbie Bianucci, president/CEO of the Bank Administration Institute, welcomes attendees to day two of the organization's 2013 Retail Delivery Conference on Wednesday. "We are so 'heads-down' on regulatory compliance that we need to lift our heads up and look around for opportunities to be innovative," she says.
