Summary

Throughout history, innovators have disrupted existing financial services norms to change the landscape of the marketplace. Disruptive Fintech briefly traces fractional reserves, the creation of bank currency that traded at a premium to bullion value, central bank regulation, securitization of assets and loans, the current state of digital currency and electronic payments. The author then looks toward the future of fintech and the forces of disruption that will change the landscape of financial life as we know it.   Using over 100 interviews with thought leading CEOs, this book develops a methodology to identify financial services that are ripe for innovation and discusses how innovative thinking can be used as a disruptive weapon to attack incumbents and create effective new fintech models. The book discusses     How to relate historical innovations and disruptions in financial services to the current landscape    How to follow a process to identify the threats facing incumbent processes and businesses, and how innovative thinking can be used as a disruptive weapon to attack incumbents and create effective new fintech models    How many fintech innovations will be constructed by re-arranging or re-purposing existing core processes    In this insightful book, author James Deitch, CPA CMB, argues that some of today’s high-flying fintech innovators will flourish, but many may perish as the fire of innovation consumes those fintechs that are slow to monetize their promises.

    Collaboration is increasingly difficult and increasingly necessary Often, to get something done that really matters to us, we need to work with people we don't agree with or like or trust. Adam Kahane has faced this challenge many times, working on big issues like democracy and jobs and climate change and on everyday issues in organizations and families. He has learned that our conventional understanding of collaboration—that it requires a harmonious team that agrees on where it's going, how it's going to get there, and who needs to do what—is wrong. Instead, we need a new approach to collaboration that embraces discord, experimentation, and genuine cocreation—which is exactly what Kahane provides in this groundbreaking and timely book.

    Berkshire Hathaway, the $300 billion conglomerate that Warren Buffett built, is among the world's largest and most famous corporations. Yet, for all its power and celebrity, few people understand Berkshire, and many assume it cannot survive without Buffett. This book proves them wrong. In a comprehensive portrait of the corporate culture that unites Berkshire's subsidiaries, Lawrence A. Cunningham unearths the traits that assure the conglomerate's continued prosperity. Riveting stories of each subsidiary's origins, triumphs, and journey to Berkshire reveal how managers generate economic value from intangibles like thrift, integrity, entrepreneurship, autonomy, and a sense of permanence. Rich with lessons for those wishing to profit from the Berkshire model, this engaging book is a valuable read for entrepreneurs, business owners, managers, family business members, and investors, and it is an important resource for scholars of corporate stewardship. General readers will enjoy learning how an iconoclastic businessman transformed a struggling textile company into a corporate legacy.

    Cutting Onions shares restaurant executive Bobby Shaw’s journey from starting out as an hourly employee at McDonald’s to becoming a senior executive in the restaurant industry, what he learned along the way, and how it changed the course of his life and countless others. 
    
    The importance of culture is referenced by many leaders trying to build an organization, but it isn’t always reflected in the day-to-day actions of that organization. This leadership guide chronicles the journey of one leader through one of the most challenging and rewarding industries, eventually inspiring hundreds of other leaders along the way to do more than they ever thought possible. Bobby dives into the challenges he overcame and how, along the way, he learned the importance of building a strong culture in which people wanted more for each other than they wanted for themselves. Cutting Onions tells the story of a restaurant that figured it out and tied the results they achieved right back to their culture, represented by the simple, everyday things that, as all leaders learn, are the most important.
