Offering 817 branches and 2600 automated teller machines (ATMs) all over Australia, ANZ is ranked in the top 4 banks in Australia along with Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank Ltd (NAB) and Westpac Banking Corporation.
This report will identify the current position of ANZ, and how they are attempting to reposition themselves in the financial services industry. The case highlights the strengths and weaknesses of ANZ and how effective their current marketing strategy is.

Anz Case Study

...competitors they must first look internally to ensure they have effective employees. ANZ recognised just how important this is when they identified the need to make changes to the organisation, “... then we needed to change the hearts and minds of the people inside the organisation” (ANZ Case Study, 2012). Managing corporate culture is important for two reasons, the first reason is that managers are unable to be present for every minute during business hours so culture will shape the way employees work without constant supervision and secondly, maintaining a strong corporate culture influences the employees decision making so they make the best decision for the organisation. The effects of culture are not limited to the internal environment but also the external environment, the culture of the workplace controls the way employees behave amongst themselves as well as with people outside the organization. Because the culture of an organisation is highly visible they facilitate adaptation to the external setting plus integration of internal processes. Negative corporate culture has effects on immediate stakeholder relations and the wider microenvironment. Employees are less likely to be motivated and driven to provide outstanding customer service when they exposed to a negative internal environment which reflects on public perception of the company and brand.

...recommended the phasing out of the directed credit programme at 10 per cent of the bank credit not only the proportion has been retained at 40% level but its coverage has been considerably enlarged. The appropriate instrument to achieve distributive justice is fiscal policy not credit policy. Fiscal policy ensures the scrutiny of budget provision at various levels. Efficiency and economy in the spending of public money are ensured by the different agencies of financial control which include the legislature, the Estimates Committee and the Public Accounts Committee. The audit of the government expenditure prescribed by the Constitution is to be undertaken by the Comptroller and Auditor General. All these agencies of control direct their control or review towards ensuring that money is available for the purpose for which it is spent, that the manner of expenditure conforms to the manner prescribed by the legislature and full value is obtained for the money spent. Further, the expenditure is either tax financed (with no quid pro quo) or by borrowing (revenue expenditure included in fiscal deficit) with inflationary consequences. While the inflationary impact of expenditure financed either by credit or budget is common, there are no checks constitutional or otherwise in the end use of funds in the case of credit. Directed credit in the name of social banking is extended out of deposits made by public in trust with banks. While the Banking Regulation Act (BRA) (viii) does......
