Blockchain and IoT Economics and Governance Workshop


Blockchain and IoT are two transformative technologies that can significantly change how a business operates both internally and externally. Companies are making choices about which technologies to implement. This Economics and Governance Workshop is designed to educate senior leadership teams on the economics and governance issues that arise when implementing a transformational strategy in an organizational setting. It can be focused on Blockchain, IoT or the combination of the two. The workshop will focus on the alignment of network participants with the strategic goals of the organization’s implementation. It will provide an overview of key concepts, including incentives, contract design, group decision-making, information systems, and market design, and explain why they are material for blockchain and IoT based business projects.

There will be in-depth discussion on how these concepts apply to the organization’s intended strategies in the context of the existing business and industry. The presenter and senior leadership team will work together to determine which issues are most likely to impact the company’s project(s). This work will position the senior leadership team to choose from identified options in order to refine the strategy for maximum impact and to determine key steps of the implementation process as they relate to aligning network participants and stakeholders.
