An unique, step-by-step workbook for frontline business and operations managers

Through ‘Building the Internet of Things’, readers around the world recognized the value of the first practical guide on how to start and scale their own IoT journey. But, there was a common thread to feedback from many constituencies – “This is great – but how about following up with a practical, step-by-step workbook?”

Frontline business and operations managers charged with implementing IoT projects still needed more. They needed a simple playbook with a checklist of considerations before, during and after launching their IoT project.

The result is this IoT Workbook—another first of its kind. Consider it an instructional companion to ‘Building the Internet of Things’. Like drawing by numbers, it helps connect all the right dots while you embark or expand on your IoT journey.

This workbook includes interactive activities that will help you assess your IoT idea, evaluate the readiness of your technology and team, create a project plan, pull the various pieces and people together, and keep them going forward.

This exercise should be fun, fairly quick and useful for anyone passionate about capturing the potential value of IoT. You don’t have to be an engineer to complete it. This can be a stand-alone workbook, but more context, insight and results can be gained by first reading, ‘Building the Internet of Things’. After all, isn’t that what IoT is all about—collecting data, analyzing and creating value from it?
