Business Leadership


Business Leadership

Leaders are often occupied with creating economic results for shareholders, elaborating strategies, hiring and firing, but far from customers and society and technological innovation. IoT Forum wants to promote a form of leadership within IoT, where:

  • leaders are deeply involved in costumers’ needs and perspectives
  • companies are environments with a vivid internal dialogue with internal and external stakeholders about open innovation across departments
  • there is more focus on societal needs than on narrow short-term company interests, and this attitude turns out to be worthwhile from a business perspective
  • technological innovation is an integrated part of solutions for citizens, also in areas where use of technology is not common
  • the company’s work must make sense in a societal and global setting

The IoT Forum board has composed a task force to work on these issues.

Expected Impacts

  • An article about leadership and IoT in the 2015 version of “Internet of Things”
  • A presentation about leadership and IoT at the Forum’s meeting in 2015
  • Program and materials for a training course and projects for business and public leaders about how to strengthen innovation
  • Organise an IoT innovation leadership course for IoT Forum members
