More than 300 BBVA Compass team members came together to set product and service development priorities for 2017 in the bank’s third U.S. Quarterly Planning meeting.

The meetings, which take place in each country across the BBVA Group’s global footprint, are designed to leverage an agile work style by having all of a project’s stakeholders get together to create realistic project plans, identify and mitigate roadblocks, and figure out how to execute those plans as quickly as possible. In this quarter’s edition, the team members celebrated their progress in 2016 and identified work to be accomplished in 2017.

“The quarterly meetings recognize our teams need to be working toward the same goals and objectives in the least amount of time.”

“The quarterly meetings recognize our teams need to be working toward the same goals and objectives in the least amount of time,” said BBVA Compass Head of Business Development Jose ‘Pepe’ Olalla. “They are among the most important meetings we hold all year, as they directly support the bank’s digital transformation initiatives.”

Derek White, global head of Customer Solutions for the BBVA Group, telegraphed the importance of the Quarterly Planning meetings by saying that the digital trends happening among consumers means that relevant solutions need to be delivered in a quick manner.

“How people interact with their money is changing dramatically, and we’d expect an even greater change in the future. We need to be on the forefront of helping them navigate their financial future by providing them the products and solutions they need, quickly.”

“The way people are interacting with every company is different and this is especially true in banking,” White said. “How people interact with their money is changing dramatically, and we’d expect an even greater change in the future. We need to be on the forefront of helping them navigate their financial future by providing them the products and solutions they need, quickly.”

Over the course of two days, the teams discussed numerous projects, each one connected to the Group’s strategic priorities.
