Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical LPWAN Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any LPWAN related project.

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 LPWAN specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the LPWAN 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 918 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which LPWAN improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 918 standard requirements:

  1. IoT-based offerings are no longer one-off product hardware sales. Instead, manufacturers will embark on new relationships with customers that last for the entire lifecycle of the hardware product. Through over-the-air (OTA) communications, firmware updates and feature enhancements can be delivered to IoT products for as long as they are installed. Given this shift, how should you price your IoT offerings/integrated services?

  2. New objects as the plethora of different device types, devices, gateways and IoT platforms need to be maintained because they are decentralized trust servers of the organizations using them. Management and governance enables organizations to meet both compliance and business requirements. Will your IAM system handle the increased number of relationships between users, devices, services and policies?

  3. Traditional data protection principles include fair and lawful data processing; data collection for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes; accurate and kept up-to-date data; data retention for no longer than necessary. Are additional principles and requirements necessary for your organizations applications?

  4. Do you have an IAM architect? Hastily deployed pockets of identity infrastructure need to be maintained for the full lifetime of the devices. You do not want to set a presence of systems with low assurance levels that an organization later must handle. Do you need end-to-end authentication and authorization?

  5. When developing and capitalizing on solutions, do you as owners consider the societal cost, systemic risk, and risk externality to avoid what may be called designer hubris. In other words, why add features when they are not needed and contribute to the insecurity/fragility of the whole system?

  6. Stakeholder organizations will all have their own objectives and channels to market and this provides them with a challenge. How do they manage their piece of the overall ecosystem and benefit from it whilst also contributing to the greater good of society at large?

  7. Extensibility: extensibility could be a huge challenge at the edge of the network, unlike a mobile system, the things in the IoT could be very dynamic. When the owner purchases a new thing, can it be easily added to the current service without any problem?

  8. Sensors and the IoT add to the growing amount of monitoring data that is available to a wide range of users. How do you effectively analyze all of this data and ensure that meaningful and relevant data and decisions are made?

  9. Designing internet of things (IoT) solutions can unlock innovation, increase efficiencies and create new competitive advantages. but in an emerging marketplace of mostly unknown and untested solutions, where do you start?

  10. What types of service platforms are required to deploy event driven applications and to make possible dynamic adaptation of service platforms or application to insertion of sensors with new classes of capabilities?

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 LPWAN projects with the 62 implementation resources:

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

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Issue Log: Are you constantly rushing from meeting to meeting?

  2. WBS Dictionary: Does the scheduling system provide for the identification of work progress against technical and other milestones, and also provide for forecasts of completion dates of scheduled work?

  3. Network Diagram: What is the lowest cost to complete this LPWAN project in xx weeks?

  4. Process Improvement Plan: Everyone agrees on what process improvement is, right?

  5. Responsibility Assignment Matrix: Competencies and craftsmanship _ what competencies are necessary and what level?

  6. Human Resource Management Plan: Have LPWAN project management standards and procedures been identified / established and documented?

  7. Team Member Performance Assessment: To what degree do team members feel that the purpose of the team is important, if not exciting?

  8. Project Charter: Success determination factors: how will the success of the LPWAN project be determined from the customers perspective?

  9. Procurement Management Plan: Is LPWAN project status reviewed with the steering and executive teams at appropriate intervals?

  10. Scope Management Plan: Are all key components of a Quality Assurance Plan present?

Results

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

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose LPWAN 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 LPWAN 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 LPWAN investments work better.

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