Re: AT&T Squashing Debate
Most definitely! It's important for someone to, my only take the lead, but to be able to lead in the right direction and have a smooth transition.

"To everything there is a season .... and a time to every expected revenue curve under the given assumptions"
The debate-society structure originated in an age of very expensive (and by our standards ridiculously slow and low-capacity) IT when the most important thing for an individual executive was not to be the one who locked in the decision that went badly, because a bad decision was so costly and because it took so long to find out it had been bad.

Now that all those conditions are changed, it's the day of "fail fast," "ready-fire-aim," and "crash test genius."

I can't predict why or how, but the curves will move again -- they're always moving -- and one day it will suddenly shift yet again from "Look before you leap" to "He who hesitates is lost."

Meanwhile, the new world is at least bold and exciting and offers us all an endless supply of things to write about.

Re: AT&T on Squashing the Debate Society
I think this is one of AT&T's greatest attributes and why the company continues to be a leader in the industry.

Re: AT&T Squashing Debate
@freehe, exactly!  It takes that kind of leadership to drive organizations in new directions!  But that is what makes them leaders and innovators.

Transformation
"Donovan also described three psychological transformations organizations must go through to excel during this transformational period in the communications industry -- humility, courage and the willingness to work alone. Donovan advised organizations to break processes down to minimize the number of individuals involved in decision-making."

In addition companies must develop a culture of accountability, develop effective communication strategies (internally and externally), develop a process to escalate issues and develop cross-functional coordination.

Companies also go through the phases of organizational change management: denial, resistance, exploration, acceptance or commitmen.

AT&T Squashing
It is great to know that AT&T continue to reinvest the company to grow and expand and take risks. The greatest companies take risks and learn from their mistakes.

Being able to reduce their development process and change their corporate culture will save money, provide ROI, increase revenue and foster a corporate cutlure of collaboration and teamwork.

Re: Best for AT&T
@clrmoney, in this case the is true. However, that may not work for every company. Some companies can use old and new or just get rid of all the old and get new like AT&T.

Re: AT&T Squashing Debate
@DHagar, I agree. He is a truly visionary leader. Now if only all company executives were like him. I can dream can't I.

The key to remaining successful in any industry is to continue to transform, expand and grow because there will always be some company that willl think of ways to do what you do better, faster, for less money and in a more efficient manner.

Re: AT&T on Squashing the Debate Society
Look at what happened to Ford as it ousted its CEO--you have to realize the trends, improvise and adapt.    But what will make things even more interesting is if in fact T-Mobile and Sprint finally do the impossible--and merge as noted in today's USA Today.

Re: AT&T on Squashing the Debate Society
Big companies need to move fast in this environment. I like how AT&T isn't fighting this current and just working within it. 

This could reap the company huge gains in the future.
