From Project to Process: 4 Key Mindset Shifts

John Sciarabba, CEO of Alden Systems, identified four changes in approach that are crucial to a successful partnership among companies providing this exciting new technology:

1. Recognize  the parties involved share a common objective. All the companies and governments working on the 5G rollout have a shared interest in providing the best possible service to their communities to help close the digital divide.

2. Respect the constraints and goals beyond the main objective. Each entity has its own role to play and each has its specific concerns. To avoid harmful breakdowns, the parties must respect one another’s interests.

3. Realize the need to be data driven. Accurate, up-to-date, comprehensive asset data is essential to swift deployment of 5G infrastructure. The large amount of data involved makes high-level joint use data management essential to the effort.

4. Shift from a project mindset to process mindset. Look at each job as part of a continuing process, instead of a project with a beginning and an end. This change in thinking allows for a more informed and efficient approach to the work at hand, and also establishes a blueprint for future work, giving companies the ability to scale.
