Project in the Winter Term 2011/2012: "Telecommunication and Socio-Cultural Mega-Trends"

In winter 2011, Corinna Huschenbeck, Sabrina Irotschek and Sabrina Lindner conducted a project on "Telecommunication and Socio-Cultural Mega-Trends". The project's goal was to investigate the influence of socio-cultural mega-trends on B2C telecommunications markets in major European economies.

In a first step, the project team identified mega-trends in Europe based on primary and secondary information. Subsequently, a few key mega-trends were selected for an in-depth analysis of their implications for telco companies and their market-side strategies. Interviews with researchers and experts on mega-trends and telecommunications markets were therefore central to the project's success.

The project was conducted in cooperation with the Swiss consultancy zehnvier and was supervised by the Institute for Strategy, Technology and Organization (ISTO).
