What would be necessary to change the DNA of a corpo­rate enab­ling conti­nuous adop­tion? Let’s have a look into stra­tegy, manage­ment, orga­ni­sa­tion, human capital and the reali­sa­tion of change. What are the ingre­dients for desi­gning success or epic fails?


Kurt Teichenthaler started his career back in 1997 at max.mobil. Joining Hutchison in 2001 he was part of the esta­blish­ment of two tele­com­mu­ni­ca­tion compa­nies in Austria.
