Akbank Part A A Crisis Is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Case Solution

Changes in the external environment and internal responses to these changes demonstrate the impact of government policies and administration on the strategic and tactical options for businesses - government decisions can produce unanticipated threats as well as provide unforeseen opportunities for businesses. This case looks at the provision of financial services both when a banking system is weak and inefficient and when it is liquid, solvent, and highly competitive, seen through the lens of Akbank's adaptation to the evolution of Turkey's banking sector. Of special interest are the effects on financial depth and financial inclusion of a commercial bank's efforts to align its internal capabilities with external opportunities. The film component (available soon) gives one a deeper understanding of both Turkey and Akbank in 2008, to better appreciate the context of Akbank's strategic and operational options. It portrays the dynamism of Turkey and Akbank, as well as both Akbank biases and beliefs of potential customers that might lead to missed opportunities in the provision of financial services for low income households and family businesses.
