Generating innovations is a must for any technological company that seriously intends to stay alive and prosper. The Internet of the Things (IoT) is a concept that involves thousands of millions of devices, and offers seemingly endless opportunities to generate innovations. IoT opens up for the establishment of new technological platforms as well as new types of ecosystems consisting of e.g. different firms, public organizations, and communities. These ecosystems constitute dynamic environments for the development of IoT technology and for generating innovations. Software is essential to foster all these innovations.

However this specific context also brings about numerous challenges. Like in many other industries, the technological life-cycles become shorter year by year, the pressure for reduced time-to-market constantly increases, and customers are becoming ever more demanding and also requires higher degrees of customization. Altogether, this increases the uncertainty associated to the innovation development process. Some particular features of IoT innovation render it particularly challenging. As IoT comprises numerous different technologies the demand for effective integration is substantial. Moreover, the development of IoT often takes place in networked ecosystems with multiple stakeholders, and this underlines the need to develop suitable business models that allow for fruitful collaboration, value generation and appropriation

In this context, software developers more and more need to attend to innovation in their development work: when developing new and attractive-to-the-customer products with the ambition to  become innovations they have to combine creativity, agility and speed to keep up. Creativity is a fundamental resource in an innovation-intensive environment, but needs to be combined with agility in order to effectively introduce flexibility in the process and make decisions to cope with uncertainty. Speed will be required to deal with intensified competition and demands for reduced time to market.

This workshop will analyze and understand the role that agility plays in generating innovations, which this far is inconclusive and even presents conflicting results. Furthermore, agility needs to be harmonized with speed for effective innovative product development in the context of the Internet of Things.
