Success stories are always attractive, and there are some good reasons for that. Failures do not usually achieve the same …success. Nevertheless, if the explanation for success stories is never exactly straightforward, this is also the case for failures or missed attempts, and lessons can certainly be drawn from these cases as well. We have selected a sample of cases in various segments of the communications industries: broadcasting (mobile TV), cable networks (Warner’s QUBE and the French national cable plan), manufacturing (Nokia), and telecommunications (WAP). This sample is not comprehensive, certainly not representative, probably biased and subjective.
