I’ve Trained Over 1,200 Product Leaders from Top Companies
The two-day IoT Product Strategy Workshop trains your whole team—Product Managers, Designers, Engineers, Marketers, and more—to create a strong and cohesive strategy for your IoT products.
In this workshop, your team will:
Learn all the components and considerations involved in creating IoT products
Get hands-on experience with theIoT Decision Framework, a step-by-step methodology to develop a cohesive strategy for a current or potential IoT product at your company
Improve communication and collaboration across disciplines thanks to a shared understanding of what it takes to build an IoT product
Who is this workshop for?
Multi-disciplinary teams, not individuals, build successful products. To get the most out of the workshop, I recommend involving representatives from as many product areas as possible. This may include Product Management, Engineering (software and hardware), Data Science, Marketing, Sales, Design, Finance, Customer Success, and Operations.
The more functions you can involve, the more your teams will be aligned and efficient as you bring your IoT products to market.
What is the workshop duration and format?
The workshop duration is two days (9 am to 5 pm) at your facility.
Day 1: We kick off with a combination of interactive presentations and group exercises that give your team a hands-on understanding of the IoT Decision Framework.
Your team will get a solid understanding of all the elements involved in creating a solid IoT product strategy, using examples from a variety of products and industries.
Scroll down to learn more about the topics covered during the workshop.
Day 2: Now it’s time to apply day 1 learnings to your own product. We will work in teams to develop a first pass of your IoT product strategy using the IoT Decision Workbook as our guide. This is also a great exercise for teams with existing products to pressure test your strategy and uncover possible opportunities and blind spots.
