Internet of Things

Only a few years ago, the Internet of Things felt more conceptual than real. But now it merits its own practice, based on both the extraordinary opportunities that surround the integration of data with the physical world and the unique set of leadership qualities that are needed to seize those opportunities. The IoT leader must be able to build data relationships across multiple ecosystems, from supply chain to manufacturing to the customer experience, speaking the language of each function while driving technical implementation. He or she must then work with the CEO, the general counsel, and others to manage the issues created by such an extensive trove of information: Who owns the data? How do you monetize it? And what responsibilities does that data bring with it?

At Egon Zehnder, our Internet of Things Practice is composed of consultants who actively work in other practices, including industrial, technology, supply chain, and services. We offer a range of experience and networks to help organizations successfully work through a connectivity transformation. We partner with boards and CEOs to design organizational structures that allow IoT leaders to work collaboratively across functions. And we build advisory boards to support boards of directors and executive committees, as well as connect our clients with the right executives, who may be deep inside industry verticals.

We look forward to partnering with you on this journey.
