    Hello and thank you for your feedback! We are striving to speed up decision making by optimizing agile ways of working. Therefore, it can take some time to adapt, as an international company with complex structures, to all the changes happening in the world right now. Deutsche Telekom is implementing changes gradually so the employees and their wellbeing is not lost throughout the process. Best regards, Alma
