Getting industry professionals ready for an industry we will not recognize is the purpose of Industry Transformation Boot Camp,  a week-long program explaining what is coming; why it is coming; what people plan to do about it; and why 5G will play such a prominent role in determining the outcome.

We are entering another new era, with unprecedented new challenges for policymakers:

  • The business model is challenged, and could break
  • Some countries might be forced back to “monopoly” facilities
  • Revenue growth will come mostly from non-human use cases
  • All the old revenue drivers will decline
  • Massive industry consolidation is coming
  • “Telecom” might not be the way the new industry develops

Those changes are unprecedented.

For most of its history, telecommunications was a monopoly, expensive and used by relatively few people. That meant one set of regulatory and policy issues, mostly centered on how to manage prices in a slow-moving utility industry.

All that changed in the late 1980s, when a global wave of privatization and competition began to take shape. For the first time, the policy framework shifted to ways to dismantle the monopoly regime and replace it with competitive markets.

Created from two elements–Spectrum Futures (5G) and PTC Academy (“think like a CEO”), the boot camp will clearly explain what will happen (massive industry consolidation; business model collapse) and why. More importantly, boot camp attendees will learn why the changes are happening; what can be done to hasten the transformations and where the opportunities and dangers lie.
