Deciphering shaping strategies for IoT companies

Part of the User Friendly podcast series

​For IoT companies, competition is fierce. But many might not be aware that they can redefine the nature of their competition using shaping strategies. The shaping strategy approach is designed for innovative IoT companies with aligned leadership who want to influence the direction of the entire industry.

Engage in a new framework

In our latest User Friendly podcast, we talk to Deloitte leaders John Hagel, managing director and co-chairman of the Deloitte LLP Center for the Edge, and John Seely Brown, the independent co-chairman of the Deloitte LLP Center for the Edge. As leaders in this category, John and John discuss the ways that using well executed shaping strategies can enable participants to learn from and share risk with one another—creating a profitable future for all.

The edge is where, surprisingly, almost all innovation now happens and you can actually play on that edge in ways that are quite different than were possible in the past. What I think we're really talking about here are shaping strategies—ways to more systematically think about how you might "punch above your weight" by playing on the edge—and learning how to engage in a large shaping strategy framework.

Listen in to learn how to use shaping strategies for your organization.
