This Summer, Silicon Flatirons hosted a course through the United States Telecommunications Training Institute (USTTI) entitled, Managing Effectively in the Changing Telecommunications Environment. The one-week, intensive program was held in, and co-sponsored by the ATLAS Institute from July 21st to July 25th. The USTTI arranged for twenty one participants to fly to Colorado for the course. Executives, managers, and regulators came from fourteen different countries, including Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Vietnam, Russia, and Peru. In addition, there were six students from CU’s Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program (ITP).
Dale Hatfield, former Chief Technologist at the FCC, and adjunct faculty member in ITP, was the lead instructor. The course focused on effective management techniques, the telecommunications climate, and efficient operational decisions. These topics were covered in depth by outside specialists and CU faculty from ITP, the law school, the economics department, the computer science department, and the Leeds School of Business. Richard Green, the President and CEO of CableLabs, spoke to the group and gave them a tour of the CableLabs facilities.
