Communication Service Providers, High-Tech Organisations, and Government should be taking a lead role in developing the requirements, technology and frameworks needed across society and the different industry verticals to enable the transformation and to meet the challenges ahead. First though, organisations need to develop clarity in their own position within emerging industry ecosystems; understand what is possible and where the value lies; build the capability to effectively evaluate opportunities and respond rapidly; to become highly customer-centric; and to partner effectively.

The task of building profitable and sustainable businesses in this environment falls to talented individuals and teams that can effectively evaluate their own markets and their organisation’s place within it; who react positively to change and embrace innovation; that can develop competitive advantage, strategy and business models with clarity and purpose; and execute that strategy whilst aligning processes, platforms, teams, individuals, performance & KPIs.

With this in mind, this programme has been designed to provide a solid foundation for executives and mid-senior managers as they meet the challenges and develop the opportunities that 5G, Connected Innovation, and Smart Technology brings to the organisation. We develop ideas, evaluate best practice, and explore ways to maximise those opportunities from the business point of view, with a full appreciation of how 5G technology will support the opportunities and value creation going forward.
