This article underlines the great correlation between an open network, where people you know don’t know each other (compared to a closed network) and professional success. In short, open networks provide a greater and more accurate view of the world, more breakthrough ideas, the ability to control the timing of information sharing, and the ability to serve as a connector between groups.
At Deecisions, we think that an open NetWork [the one dedicated to work with!not aimed to socialize] is the key to success only if it is used in a relevant manner. It has to be divided in groups of interest in order to be “usable”. An open network can be fairly difficult to manage if the people you know have absolutely no connection whatsoever between them. What we want to achieve is relevant collaboration between people in order to make profitable every part of one’s network.
