In this session Dr. Joseph Bergquist, Vice President, Commercial Lender at Harleysville Bank in Montgomery County, PA, identifies six elements that influence executive leaders’ readiness to automate the small business loan process, which include culture, leadership support, collaboration of business units, data sources, automation software, and employee’s skilled in loan automation. Joseph conducted a study sought to understand executive leaders’ perceptions of these six elements. Using a qualitative exploratory approach, he generated recommendations for the technology service provider sponsor. Recommendations focused around community bank executive leaders’ perceptions of the six elements that influence automation of the small business loan process.
