Interim Banking & Financial Services Change Expertise

Expert change leadership is critical to ensuring your change programme achieves your expected outcomes and benefits. Paternoster Consulting is the first choice for Banking & Financial Services clients seeking exceptional, interim Programme Management capability. I help senior executives, like you, to achieve successful change programme outcomes.

Change comes with Risk, doesn’t it?

Yes, it does. According to McKinsey, 70% of change & transformation programmes fail.

Are you a senior Finance, Risk or Technology executive preparing for a large and / or complex transformation programme, or the Accountable Executive / Sponsor of a change programme that is at risk of failing? You may be worried that your ambitions are not achievable without bringing additional expertise in to strengthen your team; your bold initiatives and vision for the organisation are at risk, and need to be brought back on track?

Are you concerned about being able to find an experienced, ‘safe pair of hands’ to lead delivery? Somebody who has the skill and capability to mobilise and execute your change programme, to:

► Reduce technology operating costs
► Improve operational efficiency
► Complete business acquisition, merger, integration, divestment
► Establish new legal entities, divisions or functions
► Mitigate Regulatory risk or remediate non-compliance

You can avoid becoming part of the McKinsey ‘70% Club’ with my support, because I will assume full responsibility for delivery, managing the risks, providing direction, governance and a wealth of experience, to lead your delivery teams and ensure your programme succeeds.

You don’t have the time and may lack the experience to lead the programme yourself. Expert change leadership is crucial to ensure your change programme achieves your expected outcomes and benefits. But I can help you with this.

Assured Programme Success

I ensure the success of your change programme by bringing your people, processes and technology on the change journey, together. Full benefits realisation cannot be achieved unless the human aspects of a programme are managed with the same discipline and rigour as the technical elements.

The business skills and capability to keep your people and processes aligned on the transformation journey are hard to find. Therefore, this is a key hire, because if you get it wrong it could prove costly. But with my support, you can be confident in achieving your goals.

Regarded as a trusted advisor in challenging and time-sensitive transformation environments, I manage the big and small picture at the same time, engaging and challenging appropriately to assure successful outcomes.

Success is achieved where five key metrics are met:
► The programme is delivered on time,
► It is delivered on budget,
► Technical objectives are met or exceeded,
► Commercial objectives are met or exceeded, and
► The human objectives that have been established for the change are met.

A track record of repeated success

In summary, the programmes I lead typically reduce costs by 20-40%, while achieving better than 3X RoI. With an enviable record of successfully delivering Banking & Financial Services change and transformation outcomes, these successes are the result of expertly planned activities, executed diligently.

My previous clients, (including Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide Building Society and Hodge Bank) agree. As a result, all have benefited from my commitment to achievement of those five, simple measures. Consequently, I am often asked to lead more than one programme for them.

Here’s what one client had to say: “Mark led the Group Finance workstream so admirably through transition, with a huge amount of change in the Group Finance space: From getting ready for reporting from Legal Day 1, through to the actual construct of how the payment was going to work, and all of the mechanics involved in the actual transaction – a massive well done to Mark and the very big team involved!”
