    BT’s Radical Overhaul May Be Anything But

    It’s becoming clear that the role BT Chairman Jan du Plessis wants Jansen to play is quite limited. As much as du Plessis has paid lip service to letting Jansen be “radical” in transforming BT, as he told the Financial Times in an interview last week, he also seems intent on tying Jansen’s hands.
