COURSE OVERVIEW

This new course combines:

  • an introduction to the technology comprising the Internet of Things; and
  • strategy tools for the adoption of IoT technology.

The components of IoT technology are brought to life in a workshop using hands-on activities, allowing you to experience the concepts introduced in the classes. Strategy frameworks developed by the Institute for Manufacturing from research on business and platform ecosystems are explored using real-world examples. This immersive experience takes participants on a journey from how sensors work to how the use of the data generated could transform the ecosystem in which your organisation operates.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

These workshops are designed for management- and executive-level employees in organisations from all sectors. Participants are not required to have any education in engineering or computer science, nor a technical background.

UPCOMING COURSES

Date: TBC

Duration: 3 days

Location: Face-to-face or Online

Fees: TBC

IfM members and alumni are entitled to a 10% discount off the course fees. For details of our membership scheme, click here.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN/EXPERIENCE

The desired outcome of the workshops is to equip the learner with a conceptual understanding of the opportunities and structural changes that IoT brings. The strategy frameworks aim to support the creation of value propositions through ecosystem mapping. The workshop includes basic computer programming and sensor building activities. These, however, are all guided and learning to code or to specify IoT technology are not direct objectives of the workshops.
