Hear from our panel of thinkers, authors and consultants to the financial services industry about innovation. Our panelists recently served as judges for the Barlow Research Monarch Innovation Awards, where they were asked to rate products, features and customer service enhancements based on the following criteria: uniqueness, stickiness, defendability, value and ease of use.

Specifically, we will:

Talk about what is innovative in today's marketplace
Announce the recipients of the Monarch Innovation Awards
Examine the characteristics of the winning submissions
Discuss how these products/features/customer service enhancements can be improved upon
Suggest steps for incorporating an innovation management process into your institution's product development
