With this edition, we unveil a refined mission for Management Strategies and a new look.
Since its founding in 1992, the magazine has written extensively about banks' use of technology. Over the past year or so, we have broadened out to include stories about the general management - usually with the interests of top-level executives in mind.
Now, we are systematically bringing together the themes of management and technology, under a new tag line on the cover: "Innovative leadership in financial services."
It is our aim to bring you in-depth stories that illuminate the techniques - technological and otherwise - that leading companies are using to carry out their strategies in the increasingly competitive 1990s.
To do this, we will routinely focus on four key areas: retail banking, wholesale banking, risk management, and performance.
The new look - much bolder graphic design, somewhat smaller pages - underscores our renewed vitality and comports with the recent redesign of the American Banker.
We hope you will find the magazine more readable and more useful than ever. And, as always, we'd like to hear your reaction.
