For manufacturers in today’s complex, dynamic, and IoT-enabled technology landscape, understanding your business and the market from every angle is critical.  If you had an opportunity, what questions would you ask of those who have been in your shoes...and are now steps ahead?  Listening to & learning lessons from others can help you prepare better & respond smarter to your next enterprise-wide decision about which technology platforms or solutions to adopt, how to ensure true security, or what steps to take to align your stakeholders commitments to the success of a new norm.

For your most important personal decisions, you probably engage with trusted friends and family to help you, relying upon more than internet research and reading blogs, right?  Your most critical business decisions deserve the same kind of two-way conversations with like-minded industry leaders.  Allow yourself to expand your knowledge by listening to the mistakes of others, sharing ideas, and relating to industry challenges & successes through conversation for real, applied learning. Embrace the seen and unseen circumstances in a non-threatening and non-competitive way. 

You're in a position where results matter -- taking lessons learned by others will save you time, money, and resources.
