Re: 5G Heats Up
@dir5288, especially if we learn to adapt it to its best advantage!

Re: 5G Heats Up
Very true. When 5G is completed I believe itíll be hard for new models to keep up with it completely. If itís going to be advanced as we are all thinking it will be..

Re: AT&T
@elizabethv, thanks!  Very true what you are saying.  The ability to "apply" the new technology in meaningful ways to the consumer will generate sales and develop new markets. 

The definition of "quality" is solving the customer's problems.

Re: AT&T
@DHagar - "It truly is a process of "discovery-driven" planning.  An entirely new game and one where we learn and add knowledge each step of the way." 

 

I really like what you described here. I think this will be critical for companies that aren't first into the 5G game. They don't have to be first to do a good job that consumers will appreciate.

Re: 5G Heats Up
@JohnBarnes, excellent question!  I believe it is because of technology - because the pace and speed of deliverables has accelerated.  As a result of that, we see the results much sooner and can connect the dots so that we learn more?

I think you are correct.

Re: 5G Heats Up
DHagar, I think thatís by far the most likely way for things to go. I wonder, though, if fail fast is a cause of rapid tech development or a consequence of it? I suppose it can also be both.

Re: 5G Heats Up
@JohnBarnes, great analysis.  Yes, I believe it may evolve in different forms that will fit the fail fast concept.  We will test, get response, adapt, and then reapply in rapid development cycles before production and distribution.  That may result in more interaction and involvement of cosumers and result in better products and services?

Re: 5G Heats Up
Kishore, 

Now that you mention it, I am surprised that I overlooked that, also.  Certainly consulting firms will be a major player in getting us to a system of markets that work for 5G; as you say, somebody's got to hook the pieces together.

Re: 5G Heats Up
DHagar,

There's an interesting cross-pressure which has been developing ever since computers started being a major component of communication (including digital voice and video): competitive advantage for acquiring and keeping customers goes to whoever can sell the smallest chunks a la carte (whether it's providing only the services, or only the entertainment programs, only the bandwidth, only the data, etc etc etc that the customer needs).  Yet max revenue and surest/fastest growth path goes to whoever can deliver to the customer the best mix of capabilities, including ones the customer isn't yet aware of needing but will quickly be unable to live without.  It seems like the kind of problem that markets will solve eventually, but what that solution will be and the exact pathway for getting there are still going to come as surprises.
