About Us

Who We Are

The Internet of Things Talent Consortium (IoTTC) is a unique, non-profit community of human talent experts and practitioners. We work across industries to help inspire, create and grow the organizations and workforces needed to drive IoT-enabled digital transformation in every sector.

Based on our research and conversations with C-Level leaders globally, talent and people are key barriers to adoption for IoT and they are looking for help to overcome those barriers. At our core, we are a community of digital pioneers and leading practitioners who share substantial research, frameworks, experiences, job relevant education programs along with critical lessons to positively impact the future of work and drive the next industrial revolution. Current consortium members include senior leaders from a cross section of Academia, Corporations, Startups and Learning Organizations including: Cisco, General Electric, Rockwell Automation, Microsoft, Panduit, MIT Sloan School of Management, Global Knowledge, Pearson Workforce Readiness, New York Academy of Sciences, Beeline, Acuity Brands and others.

What Differentiates Us

Let’s face it: digital transformation is one of the great challenges of our time, with wide implications that span organizational performance and survival, the structure of future labor markets, social policy, and more. C-Level leaders and their teams who join the Consortium have the unique benefit of working alongside peers from organizations already going through digital transformation. We are not a consultancy. At our core, we are a community of ‘digital business warriors’, educators and change agents that share a desire to enable digital transformation for the betterment of business, society and the world.  

What We Provide

The IOTTC provides leading organizations with real-world insights on talent and the future of work based on primary and secondary research, support, best practices from lessons learned and access to a community of experts and practitioners. We also showcase the best educational programs developed by practitioners for the top in-demand jobs and skills in the Digital, IoT arena. Our actions accelerate talent transformation in the IoT-enabled digital journey to support the next industrial revolution.
