xTech Innovation: Achieving Speed while Managing Risks
In a digital world, no organization can thrive on its own, and partnerships with xTechs offer powerful opportunities to innovate quickly, although with some risk. In this briefing, the second in a series on xTechs, we describe three mechanisms—delegated decision-making, risk management, and trust—that help large organizations innovate quickly while managing risks. We then illustrate how they do this with a case study of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank.
