METHODOLOGIES USED

 

Bank and MINDSPIRE integration methodology has been applied throughout the process.

Selected templates and standards ensured the proper execution, management, tracking and monitoring of the progress of activities. The appropriate and explicit end-to-end documentation and administration guaranteed the required transparency.

Methodology training sessions were organized for all participants, where the lately introduced templates were also explained.

As part of closing the project, lessons learned and findings from 100+ project members were collected, classified and consolidated.

Project scope and targets

Project was set up as a result of acquisition to merge two Banks.

15.5 months after the closing of the transaction the targeted legal, business and IT integration was successfully completed according to the formerly approved timeline.
