By Daniel
James' book tells of a great many stories about how banks can innovate and what it is - as banking innovation is an oxymoron. The need is self-explanatory - new technologies made possible new ways for customers to transact both online and offline - gave birth to new players that may exclude banks from the consumption-chain of customers. Banks should adapt to new realities fast - and act on them. That largely made possible phone-banking, e-banking and m-banking. Storytelling of banks who've succeeded in innovating is probably nothing new - but "Innovation and the Future Proof Bank" completes the story with a foundational chapter - how Innovation is made real - what are the recipes and the stages in order to create an innovation centre in a bank. This differentiates the book and makes it not only interesting to read, but compelling to reuse the rich experience of the author.

A very well written and researched book and especially timely given the Global Financial Crisis! Many people would not believe that a book written about Innovation in Banking and Finance could be upbeat, enjoyable and provide a realistic and honest appraisal of the highs and lows of running an Innovation organisation.

The author has been very clever in providing real-time examples and case studies, however they are related to other industries as well. Thus even if you aren't in the Finance industries, the book would be well served in it's common descriptions and delivery for other industries.

Most interesting is the chapters around teams and personalities within an Innovation group - everybody has experienced success and failure due to teaming issues and this will give an interesting overview on who and how to avoid them becoming apparent in your teams!

The book stems from theory based topics but is injected with highlights of humour that make the book enjoyable to read.

A great read, highly recommended and I certainly hope we see more from this particular author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, great insight 10 May 2011
James an incredibly well qualified individual to comment on innovation in this space. This book builds on the insights he has shared in his entertaining blog to outline a pragmatic, but challenging view of what the banking world could, and should look like.
