network development

Working together in networks is one of the most complex forms of organization. Networks are shown as a sociotechnical system of means and content. Means consist of a transmission channel and content units. Content is the information that circulates, the relationships that are built among stakeholders and users, the nature of the relationships themselves and the resources that are interchanged. The links among people, connected to the network, vary in function of intensity, duration, frequency and content.

Managing organizational networks is a challenge, but also a unique opportunity to increase the social capital or relational capital as a basis for co-creation within network organization.
