Disruption DNA

Disruptors see the world differently, bringing unique viewpoints, technologies, talent and ideas from all over the world. To build a Disruption DNA, treasury and finance professionals must be prepared to abandon the set of ideas and practices that may have made them successful. To develop the mindset and muscle around disruption, individuals and teams need to take control of their own destiny and in a world of uncertainty, this requires bold decisions and an unexpected approach. Innovation Strategist, Shawn Kanungo, presents his roadmap for facing the onslaught of technological disruption impacting finance, by exploring how to think and act differently to ensure you remain competitive and relevant.
