Off topic, but then again maybe not. A great read about Over The Top vs Mobile Carriers/Operators:
But most of this will come to nothing and the OTT guys will triumph until carriers realize that having software DNA is a necessary condition for innovating in the world of digital services that many carriers believe they occupy. This too, is an inescapable fact.
Paul Golding nailed it. I have worked with Mobile Operators for years and I always regret never seeing an operator building a software stack aimed at creating unique, differentiated services for their customers. That DNA is almost extinct in mobile carriers now.
Apparently there are 3 questions to be asked for Job Interviews:
1. Can you do the job?
2. Will you love the job?
3. Can we tolerate working with you?
It’s that simple.
A nice article on Project Closure, Lessons Learned:
As in all aspects of Project Management, it is essential that you involve your team in your end-of-project analysis. They will have different perspectives on the project, and will also have noticed problems which you, and others in the team, have not. Further to this, it is important that the team understand any changes you instigate for the next project.
Sounds obvious but it does not hurt to repeat it.
