Dealing with uncertainty. The telecom sector is at major cross-roads: Profit pools are declining, mobile and fixed services are converging, and business boundaries in the broader ecosystem are blurring. Players must decide how they will participate in industry consolidation and which bets to make on the major ongoing technological and infrastructural transition.
Building competitive advantage by making the right decisions. Telecom operators must determine how to win the war for connectivity and customer intimacy. They also need to maximize the perception of their networks' value to shift the customer focus from price alone. Such telecom "repremiumization" efforts require innovative products and services and enhanced capabilities that create a more sophisticated approach to pricing and selling.
Simplifying products, processes and the organization. Innovative telecommunications companies need to excel in managing complexity on multiple fronts, from increasingly complex bundles of products and services to an expanding universe of devices, operating systems and applications. Companies will need flexibility and efficiency to ensure that operations run smoothly and the organization achieves its full potential.
Anticipating the impact of regulation. Regulators have the ability to create significant impact on industry returns; over the next few years, they are expected to maintain pressure in telecommunications and manage the level of competition. BSI has considerable experience working with international clients and associations that who seek to influence policy and regulations.
