Unicom's Inglorious Award

Ray Le Maistre

This is like something from a bad movie … A branch of China Unicom Ltd. recently introduced what our Asia/Pacific contributing editor Robert Clark has described as "a staff motivational technique missing from the textbooks." The scheme? Force managers who missed their targets to wear a green vest bearing the word "b*stard." For the full story, including details of the other terms handed out to the worst performing managers, read Clark's blog. — Ray Le Maistre, Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading

True, but I bet they are calling out the top people as well to bring more shame on the underperforming b*stards.

You get to keep your job, since I think what you asked could be restated. What do I get for doing my job?

Dread to think what name goes on the t-shirt of the local representative of a network equipment vendor that's late with its new software release...

Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
