nortel-trialFrom Financial Post:

11 lessons from Nortel’s failure (from the case study by University of Ottawa):

• Nortel tried to acquire companies without the processes or culture necessary to integrate them;

• Nortel did not have the appropriate depth and capability to gather reliable external and internal information in order to make timely and informed decisions following the mid-1990s restructuring and dismantling of Bell-Northern Research, the company’s research subsidiary;

• Nortel had people on the technology side who could design leading-edge technology solutions and people on the sales side who understood the customers’ needs. Yet, in restructuring for revenue growth, the company lost this advantage;

• After Roth was installed as chief executive, R & D staff believed management rarely listened to them and that, when they did, they did not appear to understand;

• In winding up BNR, Nortel effectively lost the ability to see and understand longer-term needs;

• From at least the mid-1990s through to the bankruptcy filing in 2009, Nortel’s business operations rarely earned profits. The resulting financial weakness made Nortel more vulnerable to external shocks;

• Nortel’s internal information systems could not provide management or the board with appropriate and timely information;

• Nortel’s customers in 2002 began examining Nortel’s financial statements more closely and discovered a company with a very weak financial position;

• Nortel’s sense of pride was a strength in the early days but it later escalated into hubris;

• From 2001 to 2006, Nortel’s board and senior management were more focused on dealing with restatements and investigations than trying to satisfy customers’ needs and commercialize new products; and

• In 2002, Nortel should have sold off business units to generate cash and dissipate growing doubts about its survival. Full article…

TeleworkingFromHomeUnified Communications achieves a great deal in terms of allowing staff to work remotely – that’s if they choose to work. Even the best managers need retraining: so what are the pitfalls?

You come into the office and you see a sea of empty desks. That’s OK though because you’ve implemented flexible working and are using unified communications systems to ensure that everybody is working when they are supposed to.

But you’re suspicious that they might be enjoying the sun, watching the Wimbledon final on a loop…how do you know they’re not? More…

To get started, why not just use VBKTOWAV VoiceBridge voicemail forwarding. It’s quick, easy, it works, and many of our Users were motivated to install it so that they could work from home and easily stay in touch.

Give it a try. Why not indeed?
