Mexican Financial System with Luz Maria Puente Kawashima

The Mexican Financial System project, in 2012-2013, used strategic systems mapping to engage institutions across the Mexican financial system, including 42 stakeholder interviews from banks, non-banking banks, think tanks, academics, regulators, and insurers, from micro-financing to large financial institutions.  The intention, supported by co-investors UNIFIM, PWC, and the Institute for Strategic Clarity, was to see if it was possible to create a financial system that was healthier for all.

Initial Project Description

In this 19-minute exploration, Luz Maria provides an overview of the project, the 1-year process, key insights, key experiences or shifts in the participants, and potential and documented impacts.

Context.  In 2012, we were developing the ecosynomic approach to strategic systems issues involving diverse stakeholders.

Co-investment.  In this fieldwork in the Mexican financial system, we co-invested our intellectual property of strategic systems thinking and system dynamics simulation, and our social capital within the Mexican financial system.

Return on Co-investment.  The return on this co-investment was seeing how to engage a large, resource-rich system in shifting a whole system towards a deeper shared purpose that many leaders of the financial industry were able to understand and embrace.
