Armstrong Wolfe Institute
The Armstrong Wolfe purpose is to empower the COO community by providing thought leadership, promoting cross industry dialogue, and supporting collaboration, design and execution.
This led to the creation of the Armstrong Wolfe Institute, to build on the dialogue and answer the question “so what?”; to find practical ways to enhance the impact and influence of the COO and CCO with a view to bringing a greater degree of professionalism.
Our particular strength is to bring insight to the human decision making that underpins Conduct and so the health of the firm’s Culture. This latter is key to the success – or failure – of any strategy that is conceived to achieve a firm’s purpose, because Culture eats Strategy for Breakfast … and Transformation for Lunch.
The Purpose of the AWI is to identify or develop frameworks, solutions and drive new thinking to raise standards and capabilities across banking and asset management so that the function becomes a valued profession at all levels, from school leavers to experienced finance professionals. All of this is in response to priorities and the dialogue at iCOOC.
