WSP 138 — Product Management for the Internet of Things: An Intensive Bootcamp
This intensive one-day bootcamp is a combination of lectures and short exercises designed to give you the tools you need to define an IoT product strategy. First, we will examine the general principles of how an IoT solution works, from the devices that produce data, to the embedded software that sends data to the cloud, to the applications with which users interact. Then you will learn a step-by-step strategic framework for making IoT product decisions related to business strategy, user experience, technology, data, security, and industry regulation. Whether you have a business, technology, or design background, you will finish the day with an understanding of how the components of an IoT product fit together, and the confidence to immediately apply your learning to your IoT product strategy.
No specific prior IoT experience or knowledge is required, but experience working with technology products will be helpful. The instructor is also offering an eight-week version of this course (BUS 145: “Product Management for the Internet of Things: A Hands-On Course”), which is limited to eighty students and includes group work. Prospective students should review both courses and schedules to determine which one best suits their needs.
