What You Can Learn from the Music Industry

June 20, 2016

Watching the Uber/Lyft fight against the Hillsborough County PTC has been a front row seat to the old guard refusing to change.

The music industry died in 5 years. Blame it on Napster, but it was more about the Kingpins not wanted to change. Movies and TV are facing this, but seem to be adjusting better than the music industry did.

Food for Thought (Tidbits #2434)

May 2, 2016

Tidbits today but not all of them are about telecom.

From James Altucher: "Automation is eating the world. Every time a line of software is written, a job is lost." VR, 3D printing, AI and robotics will make us all unemployed soon. what then?

The INCOMPAS Mission

April 13, 2016

INCOMPAS still has a mission in DC. At the east coast show in Washington, FCC Chairman Wheeler came to talk to the association and its members with a message that we still need Competition.

He says that as Charter is set to eat two cablecos to become almost as large as Comcast. After AT&T just bought DirecTV.

Culture and Innovation

March 28, 2016

Samsung execs want to change the culture of its 300,000 employee company. Samsung wants to be more entrepreneurial. They want that start-up feel - the flexibility, the innovation, the ability to react quickly to customer needs.

It is a challenge to change the culture of any business, let alone a global company with 300K employees.

March 10, 2016

It is said that if you love what you do, that is the perfect work-life balance. Unfortunately, not many people love what they do. In fact, very few do.

Momentum Trolls Windstream (Going Up-Market)

February 2, 2016

I received this email yesterday from Momentum with the letter attached (with far too much private info not blacked out.)

"As many of you already know, Windstream is eradicating their SMB Business (Customers billing under $1500) and sending them letters like the one I have attached. Go get your customers and find them a happy home (preferably Momentum) before someone else does. Let me know how I can assist."

Windstream has decided to go up-market.

Gender Diversity Benefits

October 9, 2015

The panel I moderated at CVX Expo last week in Anaheim was original. Women in the Channel presented a discussion on Gender Diversity with Nancy Ridge (Vice President, Telecom Brokers and President & Co-Founder, Women in the Channel); Nicole Hayward (SVP of Marketing & Product Management at OnSIP Business VoIP) and Michael Oeth (CEO of OnSIP Business VoIP).

The slides have been published on Slideshare. Take a look.

Value-Driven Leadership

October 1, 2015

Is there a connection between culture, values and profit? In building a company that is built to last. I would concur with Jim Collins' research that there is a connection.

INC magazine through the Small Giants Community has started a 3-year research project with the Center for Values-Driven Leadership at Benedictine University to examine the connection between culture, values and profit.

A Lesson from Airlines

September 28, 2015

Have you noticed that the airlines are a lot like the telecom industry? Both used to be regulated; now neither are. Both had a bubble resulting in bankruptcies. Consolidation happened in both industries - with a disaster for consumers.

Experience-Centric

August 26, 2015

While search slideshare (now LinkedIn slideshare), I saw this slide, which sums up customer expectations as well as a conversation I saw having with Pete Davis of Panterra.

BYOD is not just an IT PITA (pain-in-the-@ss); it is about the user choosing. That is what Netflix is - user choice (including binge watching). That is what Consumerization of IT is.
