He also gave a session on Digital Banking, especially addressed towards the fintechs who were part of the event. The bootcamp explored different techniques and introduced the audience to new processes that drive velocity at Google, Amazon and other digital disruptors.

Furthermore, the bootcamp focused on exploring new techniques which will help the digital experts to define the digital vision for your business, challenge old behaviors, tackle poor management processes; adopt an agile mindset and way of working, such as short- cycle iterations essential for innovation, tailored to adding value to the customer experience; and embrace a ‘move fast, fail fast’ culture to drive innovation, and learn techniques for building Minimum Viable Product prototypes.

This was an open event held at NIC Islamabad and to no surprise, it was a house full. The content shared by Rob Thurner is partly available on the NIC Islamabad Facebook page.
