Vol III - “Accountability… with Extreme Prejudice”

Monday A.M. We find Brock at the beginning of a long day of peer meetings...

Brock, your 9AM is here - Jim Leavenworth, our Chief Lending Officer...

Ok, send him in, Chris!

Hiya Brock. Uh...we're going to need some help implementing ReadyApp, our new consumer LOS. I signed with them about 3 months ago. It's gonna be great for our productivity!!

Damn, man, wish you would have told me about this six months ago. But we're good I guess. How much time do we have before the conversion starts?

Well...ummm...that's the thing, Brock. ReadyApp's implementation team is in the lobby, ready to get started. Sorry I forgot to tell you about that. Details, you know!!?

That'll teach you to circumvent our time-honored IT Governance Policy, fool!!!!

So what can I do for you Alan, our most finicky CFO?

Well, Brock, I need your help finding a new product profitability system. I know we just finished implementing our old one two months ago, but I can already tell it's not going to meet our needs.

Wha?

Yeah, I guess we should have researched more, but it doesn't handle insurance or investment products....or commercial loans.

So Brock, you're in charge of our EFT contracts, and our auditors just told me we're paying roughly three times more than our peers for ATM and debit. How did that happen?

Well, I uh, thought it would be a good learning opportunity for Bernie, our Junior AVP of Card Services. He's young, but he's feisty - I thought he'd be a great negotiator....

Moron! We pay more for EFT than we do for core! And you let a Junior AVP negotiate that contract??!!

OOF!!!!

Damn, I forgot how painful accountability can be!
