What is the need driving the Telco 2.0 Transformation Stream?

There is a digital ‘hunger gap’ resulting from increasing competition and substitution from adjacent products in traditional telecoms markets. To replacing the $Bns of value lost / destroyed requires significant strategic transformation by telcos.
Transformation Stream Hunger Gap

Why is the Telco 2.0 Transformation Stream of Value?

STL Partners believes that transformation of the telecoms industry is required to grow $350+Bn of new revenue by 2020.

Without transformation, the telecoms industry (and your company) will decline. With it, there remain opportunities for growth.

Success in transformation is hard, and depends on navigating a complex range of competing demands and dynamic forces, such as:

  • preparing for the future while delivering on the current business model;
  • prioritising opportunities;
  • implementing fast and effectively;
  • delivering the right organisation structure and processes to support existing and new business models;
  • and measuring and managing change effectively


While telcos face tough choices, to choose not to change is to choose to be at best commoditised, and at worst to go bust.

The Telco 2.0 Transformation stream helps executives identify opportunities, counter threats and manage change.

What makes the Transformation Stream Unique?

  • It draws on almost a decade of experience studying and implementing new business models in TMT
  • Harnesses insights from Telco 2.0’s frequent contact with leading strategists from across the TMT industry, and a systematic and proven research methodologies that consider the key internal and external factors impacting business performance
  • Led by Chris Barraclough, Chief Strategist STL Partners / Telco 2.0
