Overview of Center Strategic Projects
Our mission: preparing Telekom for the future
The telecommunications market is continuously changing – just like us! As Telekom’s in-house consulting division, we develop innovative and sustainable solutions to ensure Telekom’s future success. Our mission is founded on two pillars:
1. Strategic Consulting and Group Transformation
As trusted advisor to Telekom’s top management, we support key transformation projects and thus ensure Telekom’s success. Therefore, we need cutting-edge ideas, innovative concepts, and consultants that strive to shape the future of a Fortune 100 corporation. With substantial market expertise, technical know-how, as well as in-depth knowledge of future developments we meet the demands of our clients. This makes us an invaluable partner to the board of Deutsche Telekom.
2. Development of Future Leaders
In addition to strategy consulting, we develop future Telekom executives. Hence, we offer a fast-track career path with the objective to shape your managerial skills and personality. This prepares you for a recognized leadership position after your CSP career – almost 80% of our senior managers transition directly to an executive position. Today, many CSP alumni hold VP, SVP, or even board member positions.
