Stanford Continuing Studies instructor Daniel Elizalde teaches the highly popular Product Management for the Internet of Things (IoT) course, and he recently invited me to opine on the subject on his IoT Product Leadership podcast. Daniel is a real expert on the subject, including a stint working with me at Stem.

In this episode, we talk about energy storage revolution and the key role IoT plays in this new era of distributed energy. We also talk about the challenges of building end-to-end IoT solutions both from a product perspective as well as the internal organizational challenges that arise when building such products. We spend some time discussing key elements to make the relationship between PM and Engineering a success, what to look for when evaluating or hiring a PM, and Advice for Product Leaders who are new to developing IoT solutions.
