The internet of things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have been hot topics across many industries for the past years. Recent developments in pervasiveness of connectivity, advances in data science and machine learning as well as reductions in the cost and power consumption of hardware are now making it possible for companies to deploy IoT solutions more effortlessly and cost-efficiently than ever before. While there are many examples of IoT solutions generating tremendous value and cost savings for companies, many are still waiting to get started.
In modern organizations, teams tend to be more autonomous than in traditional power hierarchy organizations. However, autonomy in itself is not sufficient to create success.
