Manuel Castells stated that “networked organisations outcompete all other forms of organisation, particularly the vertical, rigid, command-and-control bureaucracies…. Companies that do not or cannot follow this logic are outperformed and ultimately phased out by leaner, more flexible competitors.” (2004, p. 222) a company that cannot control what is happening on their own network risks the success of their business. Indeed in this interview with Heath Snoek from Turbosoft Networks I asked that he explain how and why networks within a company are so important. Finding out and eradicating the cause of potential issues and streamlining communication within the network is certainly something every business or potential business owner needs to explore.
