Re: Extensive re-training efforts
@dir5288 -I believe they will succeed as well, in that they are demonstrating the commitment to building the capability to fully execute their plans.  That's my definition of true transformation.

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
Good points.

I also think that AT&T is making a very smart choice with their digital transformation plans. It's always important to keep up with the new advances in technology or else you get left behind. It's great that they're moving forward and making these crucial advances.

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
@Ariella.  That is a shame on all fronts for languages.  If there is one thing I want for my son it is to be fluent in several languages - it's a skill that A) Not everyone has B) No one can really take away from you C) is fairly enduring if you learn early in life.

I'm hoping by the time he's in middle school, there is a coding requirement in place, even if it is just an Intro class.  If not, I guess I'll just have to foot the bill myself and send him to "coding camp" in the summers.

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
@batye, absolutely - it is the right thing to do and those who invest in human capital will create a true win-win.  I think the good news is that others will invest as well "after" they see the results of the smart companies.

Re: Extensive re-training efforts
@batye, that recognition is what distinguishes smart companies.  AT&T recognizes the investment truly pays off; unfortunately many companies seek a quick path and don't make those investments.  That's what impresses me about this plan.
