Jussi Tahtinen is a Principal in Oliver Wyman’s San Francisco office. Jussi has more than 10 years of experience in consulting, mainly in retail banking and payments in North America and Europe. His primary focus areas include technology strategy, operations, and business design, and transformation leadership. He supports his clients in setting up and launching multiple multi-year transformation programs across banking, capital markets, tech, and e-commerce.
My strength lies in connecting the workings of the change program to the strategic business objectives, and the people needed to drive that change.
As he describes his career path: “I have been a consultant since I graduated university. I realized early that helping companies as a consultant and advisor was a way to maximize my impact, and that has kept me in the industry. Over time, I found the most rewarding part of my work was rolling up my sleeves and collaborating on large, messy programs with clients trying to implement innovative ways of working. This has steered me towards helping clients deliver complex multi-year technology transformations.”
Jussi helps clients match their technology and operations capabilities to their business ambitions. He works mainly with financial institutions but lends his expertise across other industries to design and deliver on complex operational and technology transformations that better prepare them for operating in the ever-changing digital environment. One of his recent projects was supporting a major bank in launching their Core Banking Systems transformation: the largest change program in its history. Jussi supported the bank’s $100M+ program through program design, integrated planning, data migration strategy, solution architecture, and business readiness.
How clients navigate the challenge of technology modernization sets the foundation for their success. The future belongs to businesses that can build on their vision and are not held back by legacy constraints.
