    Unlocking the Future of Contract Management: How AI and Ncontracts Are Changing the Game

    Unlocking the Future of Contract Management: How AI and Ncontracts Are Changing the Game

    In this episode of the Industry Insights podcast, Rafael is joined by CEO and Founder of Ncontracts Michael Berman to talk about the evolution of contract management at financial institutions. It’s a timely topic as Michael’s company celebrates its 15th anniversary and he unveils Ncontracts' newest innovation - the Ntelligent Contracts Assistant. 

     

    Contracts are single most effective control a financial institution has when working with third-party vendors. An oversight when drafting or managing contracts can lead to expensive mistakes. It’s not just about pricing. Inadequate analysis of terms and conditions, failure to monitor vendor performance, and deficiencies in handling data security during transitions can all spell trouble.



    Contract management includes every aspect of the TPRM lifecycle, including vendor onboarding, ongoing oversight, and termination. Meanwhile regulatory scrutiny of contracts continues to increase, with over 100 references in recent guidance impacting banks.



    Over the years, Michael has watched contract management best practices evolve along with features that can mitigate insider threats that lead to data breaches, like vendor employee background checks, security training, and cyber insurance. 



    Now AI is transforming contract management again by uncovering risks and driving efficiency. Michael’s company, Ncontracts is leading the way with Ntelligent Contracts Assistant leading the way. It’s an exciting development for financial institutions that want to maximize their understanding of contract while minimizing the staff hours to get it done.

    Agility in Action: How Top Companies Lead Change | The Ncast Episode 41

    In a recent podcast episode, Rafael engaged in a captivating conversation with Dave Coffaro, an authority in strategy, change leadership, and organizational growth. Dave stressed the importance of agility in leadership and the need for organizations to adapt swiftly in today's dynamic business landscape. His insights are a valuable resource for navigating change successfully.

    I had an amazing conversation with Dave Coffaro for our podcast, and I'm excited to share the incredible insights he provided. Dave, an expert in strategy, change leadership, and organizational growth, delivered valuable wisdom during our chat.

    Dave serves as a Principal of the Strategic Advisory Consulting Group. Dave works with service businesses, financial services, academic insurance professional service firms, and nonprofits in refining and redesigning their future state to achieve accelerating growth, more favorable economics, or both. His work also includes serving as interim CEO for organizations in transition. Dave is also published and has a number of articles and blogs that are published in SmartBrief on leadership, the American Management Association Journal, Board Leadership, and the ABA banking journal, to name a few. Dave is also an author and his latest book is Leading from Zero: Seven Essential Elements of Earning Relevance.

    Dave begins by highlighting that leadership extends beyond the C-suite; it's a quality that can be exhibited by individuals at all levels within an organization. It involves making choices, bringing innovative ideas to the forefront, and positively influencing the organization.

    He emphasizes the importance of leveraging competencies, recognizing your organization's strengths, and seeking partnerships that complement those strengths. The goal is to adapt and evolve while remaining true to your core competencies.

    Dave introduces the concept of organizational agility, a vital attribute in today's rapidly changing business landscape. This agility involves continuously monitoring both internal and external changes, interpreting their implications, and swiftly adapting. Change leadership isn't a side project; it's integral to the core business.

    He presents McKinsey's definition of organizational agility, which underscores the ability to reconfigure strategy, structure, processes, people, and technology to seize value-creating and value-protecting opportunities.

    Our discussion delves into how the pandemic accelerated the need for agility in financial institutions. Legacy systems are now challenged by agile fintech startups, and regulatory agencies are embracing innovation. This adaptability is essential to staying competitive.

    Dave underscores the significance of adopting a holistic perspective within organizations. Breaking down silos and viewing the organization as a living entity rather than a rigid machine allows for quicker responses to change and optimal resource allocation.

    In summary, Dave Coffaro's insights on leadership, agility, and organizational growth are invaluable in today's dynamic business environment. The conversation serves as a reminder that agility and adaptability are core competencies that organizations and individuals should cultivate.
