Banks and financial services firms are at a crossroads. They must continue to manage costs effectively and improve efficiencies in volatile economic times. However, indiscriminate cost reductions may severely weaken their ability to grow revenues as the economic outlook improves.
A sustained approach to cost management that seeks to build a culture of consistent efficiency improvement across the enterprise ensures lasting financial success.

Perils of One-Off Cost Reduction Programs

While this approach achieves rapid cost benefits, in the long run it often leaves the organization unable to sustain those cost reductions, resulting in a competitive disadvantage.
