Digital Banking - FinTech is cannibalizing Banks - October 2014
The best job in banking: Chief Cannibal
“Everybody missed the [job] title that will be the most important one in the future: the Chief Cannibal.
The Chief Cannibal runs the internal Cannibalization Department, a group with the one pure mission: destroy our business.
The focus of the cannibals is to look at every part of the bank and see if they could destroy it. Using technology, new structures, new thinking, new business models, the aim of the cannibals is to knock down the sacred cows within the bank, leap across the product silo’s and challenge every nuance of thinking.
Of course, the cannibals are really annoying – who wants to get eaten? – and they don’t necessarily appear on your doorstep every day but, when they do, prepare to be destroyed. (...)
That is why banks need an Internal Cannibalisation Unit and, if I could get that job, I would be happy to be nominated as the Chief Cannibal. In fact, it would be a pleasure, as I enjoy a bottle of Chianti.” *
