For the first time, The Network Challenge brings together thought leaders from many fields-a team of experts as broad as the network challenge itself."-Kenichi Ohmae, author of more than 100 books, including the seminal work, The Mind of the Strategist, advisor on global strategy to foreign governments and scores of multinational corporations, selected by The Economist as one of five management gurus in the world.

Networks introduce new risks (as seen by the rapid spread of contagion in global financial markets) and opportunities (as seen in the rapid rise of network-based businesses).While managers typically view business through the lens of a single firm, this book challenges readers to take a broader view of their enterprises and opportunities.
