RAFM Collaboration: Who Do You Know and Who Do You Respect?

I never run opinion polls on this website but today I am going to break my golden rule with a quick and simple poll about revenue assurance and fraud management collaboration between comms providers. My theory is that there is a ratio of 10 to 1 (or worse) between the number of professionals who talk about the benefits of RAFM collaboration and the number who actually do it. If you think I am wrong, then you should respond to prove me wrong. And if you do not respond, then you have proven me right, because if you cannot spare a single minute to encourage others to join the cooperative activities you most admire, then what does that say about the importance of collaboration?

The results of this poll will be shared next week. Do not delay – just press the buttons now. I do not care who you are and nobody is collecting your personal data. All I want to know is:

  • Which collaborative organizations/programs you have heard of
  • How much you respect their work
  • Which continent you are from

There are no right or wrong answers, and the results should be fascinating. So here it is!

Update: The results of the poll can be found here.
