Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated IoT specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the IoT Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 998 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which IoT improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 998 standard requirements:

  1. What advice do you have for businesses that are already using big data and business intelligence as to how to embed that data and analytics into an Internet of Things approach?

  2. How can organizations secure IoT devices to take advantage of new business opportunities, while leveraging the same solutions to address risks in the rest of environments?

  3. What steps is your organization taking, or planning to take, to use the IoT more extensively in the business (either in products/services or internal operations)?

  4. Is the architecture for differing solutions the same or different, and do standards exist for integrating between different IoT systems from different vendors?

  5. How to securely store operational parameters and keys on an IoT device that is often deployed in potentially harsh environments where keys can be compromised?

  6. Do you meet your industrys best practices in the design and manufacturing processes of your IoT technology, especially to ensure product safety and security?

  7. Does the operation of your IoT technology involve the processing of personal data relating to categories so that data subjects are personally identifiable?

  8. Do your cyber, property, and general liability policies and plans adequately protect your organization from any increased cyber exposures from IoT devices?

  9. How are you considering the security of all communication links, storage infrastructure, and other inputs of the ecosystem related to your IoT technology?

  10. How will trends like cloud adoption, Internet of Things, software-driven data centers and advances in IT hardware shape the Infrastructure of the future?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the IoT book in PDF containing 998 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage IoT projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step IoT Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 IoT project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Responsibility Assignment Matrix: Is it safe to say you can handle more work or that some tasks you are supposed to do arent worth doing?

  2. Quality Management Plan: How does your organization recruit, hire, and retain new employees?

  3. WBS Dictionary: Are procedures in existence that control replanning of unopened work packages, and are corresponding procedures adhered to?

  4. Duration Estimating Worksheet: Value pocket identification & quantification what are value pockets?

  5. Procurement Management Plan: Are vendor contract reports, reviews and visits conducted periodically?

  6. Project Charter: IoT project background: what is the primary motivation for this IoT project?

  7. Source Selection Criteria: What are the most critical evaluation criteria that prove to be tiebreakers in the evaluation of proposals?

  8. Project Scope Statement: Relevant - ask yourself can you get there; why are you doing this IoT project?

  9. Probability and Impact Assessment: What is the past performance of the IoT project manager?

  10. Resource Breakdown Structure: How difficult will it be to do specific activities on this IoT project?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any IoT project with this in-depth IoT Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose IoT projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in IoT and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make IoT investments work better.

This IoT All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
