WorkshopWorkshop Managing mobile costs is one of those meaty issues that most people can share more than a few stories about. Whether it is the PA in HR who was running up bills of £500 a month calling her aunty in Australia, or the guy in sales who though it was OK to download a few episodes of Top Gear to pass some time while he was trying to clinch that deal in Oman. Of course, going back a few years, the issue of managing mobile within the business was a fairly straightforward affair. Mobiles were few and far between, didn't do data, or roam, and even if people used them for personal use, then it wasn't really an issue as there was no way that it could be properly identified. So, why worry too much about it, especially as the cost to the business wasn't that great.

WorkshopWorkshop We tried to get through this workshop without using the five letter C-word, but we could not quite make it to the end.
