Welcome to the latest edition of Finativ Insight.

We open this issue with a case study showcasing how a leading automotive leasing broker drives operational excellence with Finativ Focus's help. They have achieved impressive results by optimising deal flow and customer service without increasing costs, including immediate capacity increases, enhanced customer satisfaction, and significant financial benefits.

Next, we provide guidance on how finance companies can successfully enter the rapidly growing renewable energy financing market. By developing an asset-centric approach, effectively managing risk, and staying attuned to market feedback and regulatory changes, organisations can capitalise on the strong opportunities and higher profitability this sector offers.

We also explore the critical role of Agile Teams in driving digital transformation and fostering collaboration between business and IT. This article delves into how empowering cross-functional teams to make product decisions leads to improved communication, trust, and, ultimately, better results.

In addition, we take a closer look at why projects don't always go according to plan and share valuable insights on how to avoid unwelcome surprises. From strategic planning and prioritisation to decision-making and data-driven evidence, we discuss the key factors contributing to successful project execution.

As AI continues to gain momentum, we examine why now is the time for businesses to start their AI journey. We outline a clear path forward, including essential foundations for successful AI implementation, tips on getting started, and lessons learned from industry experts.

Finally, for technology leaders, our free-to-join, face-to-face event on 11 June in Birmingham focuses on building a culture of partnership and effective communication to support the delivery of technology initiatives. Please get in touch with if you're interested in attending.

We hope this edition of Insight provides you with valuable information and practical strategies to navigate the ever-evolving landscape in which we operate.

As always, we welcome your feedback and look forward to continuing the conversation.
