    Consultant-speak and fake office culture is ruining banks' operating effectiveness

    Consultants are taking over the world, and while this is good for them and their bottom line, it isn’t good for team satisfaction or indeed corporate effectiveness.

    P2P lending will finish banks! Yeah, right…

    Just recently I’ve read some good things about peer-to-peer (P2P) lending: how it’s growing fast; how it offers a superior product and better interest rates to both savers and lenders; how its use of the internet gives it a march on the technology stakes compared to banks; and how it simply is wonderful simply by dint of not being offered by banks.
