Today's leader needs to be equipped with the tools and skills to find an effective way to collaborate with others. Global organizations today are highly complex, involving multiple parties, offshore operations, and matrix management structures. Leaders can only successfully deliver their strategic goals if they have the ability to build collaboration across the silos these create.
"Collaborative Leadership in Financial Services" is a practical guide which focuses on technologists within investment banking and capital markets. It is intended for everyone within the hierarchy of an organization whose collaboration is essential for the smooth running of a technology operation with many stakeholders. It shows how to improve leadership by explaining how to make this collaboration successful and effective.
'Ullah is exactly right that the new era of financial services requires a collaborative as well as a competitive mindset. This intensely practical book is packed with wisdom, tips and techniques to help managers achieve this.'
-- Nigel Nicholson, Professor of Organisational Behaviour, London Business School and author of Family Wars (Kogan Page), Traders (OUP), and Managing the Human Animal (Thomson/Texere).
