Steve Shellabear, from dancing lion (second from left) with some friends from the Merchants consultancy team in India. Steve is working with a major telco overseeing the Learning & Development strand to rollout 4G across India. This ambitious project, due to launch in late 2014 will enable communications for ordinary people throughout the country. It will link central and remote areas through mobiles, fixed line and WIFI improving quality of life and creating thousands of employment opportunities.
Steve said: “3 months into the project now and the pace is picking up. It is great to have a strong team to work with and we are having fun out here too. As we rollout the training programme we will be inviting friends and colleagues to join us. As is frequently the way for a new launch, there is a lot to be done in short time frames. The challenge is managing the interdependencies for people, processes and technology so that everything comes together in the right places at the right time.”
