Innovation Committee

The aim of the Committee is to help increase the Bank’s focus on innovation and to ensure more effective prioritization of innovative projects. In this context, projects approved by the Innovation Committee will be prioritized for all other Bank’s processes and committees (PSM, New Business and Product Committee, etc. ) so as to realize them quickly. The Committee is responsible for: 

  • Make available the setting and the resources that will guarantee collection and consideration of the personnel’s innovative solution suggestions in the most efficient manner possible.
  • Determine topics to focus on periodically. Innovation and Digital Banking teams organize internal and external training programs, workshops and events centered on these topics and encourage development of products, services and processes specific to such topics.
  • Decide whether to realize or not projects linked to the topic or stand-alone projects coming through the innovation pipeline as well as their priority. Those projects that are prioritized and handled by the Project Strategy Meeting are automatically prioritized at the PSM and resource allocation is made for those that will be outsourced. 

In 2018, the Committee held two meetings.
