I do not think there is any thrill that can
go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor
as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success . . .
Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.

Nikola Tesla

Networks for Business Survival

Our world is less and less about the single pieces of intellectual property and more and more about the networks that help connect these pieces. 

The total stock of information used in these ecosystems exceeds the capacity of single organizations because doubling the size of huge organizations does not double the capacity of that organization to hold knowledge and put it into productive use. 

In a world in which implementing the next generation of ideas will increasingly require pulling resources from different organizations, barriers to collaboration will be a crucial constraint limiting the development of firms. 

Agility, context, and a strong network are becoming the survival traits where assets, control, and power used to rule.
