The major change all companies need to make is to dispose of non-working assets. If an asset hasn’t been profitable in over a year, it’s time to move on. Another change that is focused on is the need for regulatory compliance. Each and every organization needs to emphasize regulatory requirements efficiently. Lastly, you need to “shrink smart” and manage risk management in an appropriate fashion.

Throughout this podcast you will learn the “right” way to cut expenses and how to keep the regulators happy. We also found that there are many financial institutions that have remained successful despite the recent downturn. Tune in to learn the secret to their success and ways to bring their strategies into your own environment.

A Changing World requires New Thinking

Did you know that 5 exabytes of new information will be generated this year?  To borrow a phrase from Carl Sagan, that’s “billions and billions” of bits of information (10 to the 18th power to be exact) which are ready to be discovered, reviewed, stored, lost, protected, managed or more importantly shared!  Is it any wonder we can feel over-loaded and over-whelmed by it all?

In the spirit of adding useful information to the mix, BearingPoint is pleased to launch this blog to tap into new thinking wherever it resides.  We’ll share ideas from some of our own best thinkers, but we’re opening up this online stage to everyone to foster a dialogue on the issues that matter most to today’s organizations.  Information isn’t currency unless it’s current, so we hope that this real-time discussion can help us all leverage some of the best new thinking in today’s rapidly changing world.  Think of it as another way to get the right information to the right people at the right time.

So, what’s on your mind? We’re here to help…
