November 17, 2010 – TM Forum’s Management World remained focused on operations this year. Even so, their expansion into “specialist streams” might have led some people into thinking TM Forum is “straying” from its core competency. 

We found this interesting piece of news on Connected Earth Online in their article, “Management World Orlando reflects need for an ‘agile provider’.” C-level executives and decision makers seem to be aware of the convergence, as 60 percent of registrants are senior decision makers and executives. The 1,200 attendees are learning how 320 companies from 49 countries are integrating, competing and innovating.  

As stated in the welcome by TM Forum President Martin Creaner, an “agile provider” is what is critical to future growth. “And being agile is about a lot more than cost reduction – it requires an ability to deliver truly customer-centric, innovative services quickly, working flexibly with a value-chain of partners,” according to Creaner.
