The banking industry is consolidating to streamline its operations through mergers and acquisitions, and is adopting new technologies to develop innovative products and services, thereby achieving both economies of scale and scope. Operational risk management has become a serious issue in the banking industry. Some reputed banks are either forced to close down their operations (eg., Citibank Private Bank in Japan) or faced cost overruns (eg., Barings Bank in England) due to poor operational risk management. In the supply chain industry, businesses are engaged in devising effective solutions using RFID technologies to locate and track the goods. We present the dynamics of banking industry in terms of operational risk management, innovation and business strategies. We also present the process mapping of RFID technology use in banking business areas to minimize operational risks. We further come-up with an effective operational risk management framework for banks to follow in improving their operational risk management.
