Digital transformation and innovation are becoming keystones in the insurance sector’s evolution. Caroline Bedford, Chief Executive at EDII, delves into the pivotal role of fostering innovation and future-focused skills in the insurance industry in the latest episode of Hyperexponential‘s podcast.
In her engaging discussion with TEC, Bedford highlighted the necessity for insurance companies to adapt and evolve amidst rapidly changing customer expectations that outpace industry norms.
Traditionally, the insurance realm has faced challenges with transformation initiatives, often yielding costly projects that failed to deliver intended outcomes. However, in the face of this evolving customer landscape, insurers must leverage their expertise and capabilities to revamp business models and elevate customer experiences.
While acknowledging the value of incremental changes and continuous steps, Bedford stressed the crucial need to embrace more substantial, impactful transformations to remain competitive in the dynamic insurance landscape.
Bedford’s commitment to fostering future-focused skills resonates deeply throughout the conversation. The discourse encompasses leveraging emerging technology for a competitive edge, along with instilling confidence in digital platforms among senior employees within the insurance sector.
A key takeaway from the talk was the necessity for successful technology transformation to be complemented by a corresponding cultural shift. The mere adoption of new tools or platforms, without a corresponding mindset shift and widespread acceptance, may fall short in its effectiveness.
