Editorial Reviews

Advance Praise:"Pedro Pablo Ramos is shedding new light on how organizations can transform themselves and adapt to the Knowledge Worker Age. He reveals how every company is a network—although most of them are not aware of it—a social network that links people, teams processes, activities and information. Pedro provides us with the concepts and tools to understand the network found in every company, allowing us to analyze, understand and improve the functioning of the complex system the company actually is." --Stephen R. Covey, international bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
