From the Inside Flap
Everybody knows that digital is the future of banking, so what's stopping your institution from taking the evolutionary leap into 21st century banking and giving your members and customers the kinds of e-offerings and services currently available from large commercial banks?
While the answers to that question may varyranging from resistance to cultural change, misconceptions regarding the cost and complexity of upgrading to a modern digital system, and even reluctance among hidebound board membersthe outcome is always the same: stagnation and a loss of competitiveness.
Don't let your fear of the unknown allow your more forward-thinking competitors to leave you in the dust. You can make the transition to digital, and, as you'll discover within the pages of this book, it's easier, less expensive, and far less disruptive than you may think.
Written by a uniquely qualified author who has spent the past several decades leading technology change at smaller banking institutions, Breaking Digital Gridlock empowers credit unions and community banks to make the shift to digitalwithout a seven-figure consulting budget.
Combining expert insight and advice, with practical, real-world guidance on leadership, technology, security, and more, Breaking Digital Gridlock provides the solutions, strategies, and knowledge you need to move your institution into the digital future. You'll learn to:
- Identify revolutionary versus evolutionary technology opportunities
- Empower employee innovation and be more receptive to good ideas from employees

- Forge strategic partnerships that will drive growth and success amid technological upheaval
The companion website supplies you with a digital readiness assessment that helps give you a clear picture of the scope of the change you need to make, along with a progress chart that guides you through every step of the process. It also provides access to digital assets that help facilitate implementation, as well as access to a reader forum where you can exchange ideas, experiences, and advice with your colleagues at institutions around the world.
No matter the perceived obstacles to upgrading your organization's digital profile, it all adds up to the same thing: institutional gridlock. Don't get left idling in the slow lane. You owe it to your customers to break through the digital gridlock, and this book shows you how.

Breaking Digital Gridlock is a must buy and incredibly difficult to put down once you've started. Whatever it's worth to you, it's easily going to double it's value with the information and confidence you'll gain from it.
Imagine reading a book forty years ago about adopting email or mobile communications in the workplace. It wasn't a matter of if, but when. Today companies can't exist without the unbroken communication link that email and mobile devices provide. Digital transformation is not a choice. Best's book provides organizations with a fundamental guidebook to executing that transformation.
John Best thinks about things differently than most people. That does not necessarily make him right, however it does make his thoughts valuable. And by the way, I suspect time will prove him to be right more often than not.
I am already looking forward to Version 50.48
