Many companies have innovative Internet-of-Things-concepts but are challenged when it comes to bringing them alive. In this workshop you learn how to set up projects and create realistic roadmaps. Another challenge is to effectively include and address stakeholders, because most IoT projects are not physical at first sight.

About the Workshop

Date&Location: 27. November 2019 – Startplatz, Cologne
Trainer: Robert Jänisch
Language: English

This workshop is part of our Pre-Conference Workshop Day for Digitale Leute Summit 2019.

Using rapid prototyping, innovation teams get a tool at hand to make ideas reality in a matter of weeks. Prototypes help communicate the story of your product or service and serve as proof of concept for your vision – better than any slide deck ever could. They help you make better decisions, develop better products faster and reduce market risks.

In his workshop, Robert Jänisch, CEO IOX, will provide a step by step explanation on how to start IoT projects. Learn how to include stakeholders and how to deliver visible results to demonstrate the value of your product. With advice on tools and methods, his insights will equip the audience with the right mindset to foster their projects within their companies.
