The material originated from my real-world consulting experience, but the structure and learning path of the content was honed by live-training hundreds of professionals over the years.
illions of devices and trillions of dollars. When most people look at the Internet of Things they see technology. I see money. Lots of money. Money saved from increased operational efficiency and asset utilization, and incremental money made through innovation and invention. I also see in terms of outcomes – what I consider to be IoT’s killer app.
The biggest challenge in IoT isn’t standards and it isn’t security. The #1 challenge in IoT today is how and where to invest in the tech to yield a positive ROI and a more valuable business. That’s the purpose of this program: training professionals to solve this most pressing challenge.
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from advising my clients, teaching my students and interviewing IoT’s top experts and channeled it into the ICIP training program – a comprehensive, step-by-step training program on how to do smart digital transformations based on IoT.
The ICIP training program is delivered through three complete courses: ICIP Technology, ICIP Business and ICIP Strategy & Execution, that combined consist of 45 modules with 163 lessons and 28 quizzes, reinforced with a final exam.
You’ll learn the key concepts and principles required to design smart products and architect smart operations. You’ll be exposed to a wide variety of case studies as well as clear and easy to follow frameworks that leave nothing out so you can fully implement your smart digital transformations using IoT.
After completing the ICIP program, you will understand IoT and how to profit from it – seeing the trillions of dollars instead of the billions of devices.
And since there is a 30-day, money-back guarantee your risk is mitigated. Hope to see you inside. Bruce

Bruce did an exceptional job at outlining how to build an IoT business in a way that was relevant to all industries and all levels of knowledge. It was a privilege to have such in-depth knowledge shared and I felt that I walked away with new ideas, clarification and validation of the work we have begun.

Provided an excellent broad overview and deep-dive topics in the IoT space...a good introduction for some; a good refresher for others; and latest updates for veterans. Excellent use of examples and case studies to drive the concepts home.
Let’s talk. Contact me at bruce at iot-inc dot c*m if you have any questions about the training program.
started in the business of IoT in 2008 as CEO of a networking company that sold a smart home enabling platform to Internet Service Providers. My career began as a mathematician and then programmer who quickly found my way to business through marketing. I worked my way through product marketing and brand management to be VP of Marketing for a large Microsoft subsidiary. Since then I have been CEO of companies in the visual computing and networking industries.
My first book, IoT Inc.: How Your Company Can Use the Internet of Things to Win in the Outcome Economy, was published by McGraw-Hill and since then I wrote my second book, The Private Equity Digital Operating Partner which is an application of IoT Inc to the private equity sector.
I’m known in the industry from my podcast and articles in publications such as Computerworld, Forbes, Network World and ZDNet. Today I’m a consultant to corporations and portfolio companies on how to use smart digital transformation to create incremental and alpha enterprise value.
