Little’s latest viewpoint “FTTH: Double Squeeze of Incumbents – Forced to Partner?" provides insight into the ultra-high-speed broadband sector.  It calls on incumbent operators in Europe to change their strategy, and for governments and regulators to adjust their policies or Europe’s economic competitiveness could be impacted.

Arthur D. Little: Telecoms operators can increase EBITDA by focussing on customer value

In order to create long-term competitive advantage in a maturing market, telecoms operators must transform their business models to extract more value from their customer base.  This is the key finding of “Making Value Management Work, at Last”, a new report by global management consultancy Arthur D.

Does the government have the political will to change direction on UK energy policy? asks Arthur D. Little

The UK government’s first annual energy statement recently acknowledged the ongoing need to realign UK energy policy in order to implement an environmentally responsible, secure and cost-efficient energy infrastructure.  Global management consultancy Arthur D. Little believes that the inconsistent policies so far pursued seem destined to deliver a high cost, low quality infrastructure – and asks whether the current government is willing to turn this situation around.

Central to the government’s target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 34 per cent below their 1990 levels by 2020 are the increase in the proportion of electricity generated from renewable sources, and energy efficiency measures. In Realigning UK energy policy, Arthur D. Little analyses how realistic and cost-effective some of the measures outlined for reaching this target really are: [...]

A strong opportunity exists for telecoms operators to enter the power market by providing backbone infrastructure for smart grids. This is the core finding of a new report from global management consultancy Arthur D. Little – “Smart Grid opportunities for telcos” – in which experts analyse a range of business models in the context of smart grid adoption, and evaluate their attractiveness and feasibility for telecoms operators.  The consultancy has additionally developed a “future grid strategy kit” for telecoms operators to help them to prepare for a successful entry into the power market.

Arthur D. Little: M-payments in M-BRIC to reach approximately USD 60bn by 2015

The time is right for service providers to enter M-BRIC m-payment markets, according to a recent study by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little. While only 32 million people in M-BRIC currently use mobile financial services, Arthur D. Little projects that this number will increase to 290 million users by 2015.

According to "M-Payments in M-BRIC", mobile financial services are currently experiencing a global surge. While every second person owns a mobile device in M-BRIC countries, 70 per cent of their population is currently excluded from the banking sector.  As such, there is great potential for new entrants to actively shape the local m-payment market.

Arthur D. Little: Putting IT governance at the top of the agenda

Now is the time for corporations to make fundamental changes to the way they organise business IT, with 40 per cent of CEOs and CIOs pointing towards an overhaul in IT governance. This is the key finding of a study of 63 large corporations by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little. The consultancy has developed an approach to provide companies with the means for optimising IT governance.

Over recent years, corporate governance has become mandatory. As a subset of corporate governance, IT governance has made its way up the corporate agenda. With many IT organizations in survival mode due to the economic crisis, Arthur D. Little believes this is the time to align IT with business to overcome a period of hibernation and in preparation for economic growth. [...]

Is nuclear new build more a management than a technology challenge? asks Arthur D. Little

Global management consultancy Arthur D. Little has produced a major new study that examines the management and technology issues facing nuclear new build projects and provides a comprehensive framework to help owners overcome potential obstacles and reduce risk. "Nuclear New Build Unveiled" analyzes the current status of and trends within the nuclear industry, particularly in the context of many projects being run on very tight time schedules by teams with little or no experience of nuclear new build.

The study concludes that, besides its technical complexity, the management issues of a nuclear new build are often underestimated and call for professional management of the venture. [...]

Arthur D. Little: Business is back in business

The majority of CXOs across all industries predict businesses will return to pre-crisis activity levels by the end of 2011. This is the finding of a survey by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little of 338 executives worldwide, with 71 per cent of CXOs believing their businesses will fully recover. This is a more prudent outlook compared to the consultancy’s survey conducted last year, where 84 per cent of executives predicted this result. Yet, the popular notion of the “new normal”, commonly referring to a downsizing of the global economy, has been shown to have few adherents, with 75 per cent of executives estimating growth to be at least as high as before the crisis took hold.

Executives’ optimism is linked to the lasting benefits of the fundamental restructuring that businesses could not avoid. These include lower working capital, higher productivity through redundancies, re-engineered processes, higher capacity through cutbacks, and a rationalized manufacturing and logistics footprint – going back to basics.
