|Location||Tehran, Iran (TCI Holding, TCI, MCI)|
|Project||IT Strategy for the biggest Telco in Asia|
Driven by the investor the responsibility was to form in a small team (personally leading the core IT-strategy, Business/IT-Alignment and Governance) the future of the IT of a formerly governmental Telco with around 36,000 employees consisting of a profitable mobile and a non profitable fixed Telco and some additional subsidiaries.
The challenge was to create an understanding about the role of a centralized IT (Shared Service Center) as there are 30 fixed-line "kingdoms" united to one fixed incumbent during the project.
Esp. to define the bussines setup, governance, sourcing strategies (HR related, Mergers), possible processes-improvements and financial / business planning for establishing the Shared Service Center made this project interesting.
Overall this was a challenging strategy project with a lot of political aspects, aiming to create a leading converged telco (headword: FMC, OTT-Strategies, eTOM, SID, Common Data Architecture BSS and OSS, ITIL/Cobit-Processes, Financial Mgmt, etc.) whose maturity was - similar to other incumbents worldwide – in the beginning very low.
