From Telco to Techco: What’s the score? 

A common theme in transformation narratives is the desire to become ‘more like a techco’.

What does this mean in practice, who is making progress and what are the key lessons and approaches? 

Changing from telco to techco is really another way of saying ‘telcos need to transform’. It is a little more descriptive because it gives a hint of what a telco might need to be, but it is still just another soundbite to try to advance the change agenda. 

In STL Partners’ view it is a good start, but it is far from a complete recipe for success. 

Talk to Nicola Warren, STL’s lead analyst on Transformation Leadership to see the successful elements of the idea, how is it going, and what else is really needed to create the telco of the future.
