Re: Makes me think of I hope so for the sake of the thousands who still work for ALU and all who depend on it especially as I saw ALU's latest quest to partner w/Australia's NEXTGEN Team...

Re: Makes me think of MikeP - I don't think it's at all the case that hte train has left the station and AlcaLu has been left behind. The company's IP focus gives it a solid foundation to rebuild on.

Re: Makes me think of What is gratifying to see how cheerful and optimistic he is--but it seems to me as you noted that the train has left the station and ALU has been left in the midst.

Makes me think of Alcatel-Lucent's story makes me think of another struggling company: BlackBerry.

Alcatel-Lucent is succeeding by finding its strongest pillar -- IP networking -- and rebuilding the company on that foundation. 

What strong pillar does BlackBerry have? Does it even have one? Keyboard phones are a plus for many people, but is that enough to rebuild a whole company on?

Partnerships Partnerships will help, but if ALU is intent on taking on the likes of Ericsson, the latter company is positioning competitively by both partnering AND acquiring. If ALU isn't going to sell the entire company, can it buy  to augment the areas it hasn't sold off already?

Re: About ALU CEO You're right!

I always get lost between CEO/Chairman/President and so on...

Re: About ALU CEO Tchuruk was chairman of ALcatel-Lucent, while Russo was CEO.

About ALU CEO Just to be precise, Pat Russo was CEO together with Serge Tchuruk, French citizen, so M.Combes is not really the 1st one...

Re: A strong and competitive ALU is good... I think the partnerships are key too. ALU said they are going to do 4 to 5 of those, so I'll be curious to hear what the next ones focus on and who they are with.

Alcatel-Lucent CEO: We Can Go It Alone @Heraldsvik, it sounds as it ALU's success is a win-win for everyone. 

I like their recognition of the intersection of networks and IT as being a key to further success.  You are right, if they can now execute and bring to life their development capabilities and deliverables, they will continue to hold a strong position. 

I also think they might have a good strategy with building a multi-partner network, as opposed to just merging with a single player.  This might work.
