Because information alone does not contain the answers — people do.
Imagine the remarkable things your people will do when they can find and connect with the right expertise ... easily.
Networks have always been important, but now they are the first place people go to share, inquire, learn and get things done. The internet and easily accessible information has changed the way we work – but it still takes a team or a community to transform an idea into reality.
Successful organizations help each person create and nurture robust individual networks with colleagues, peers and mentors from inside and outside their own organization. We believe information alone does not contain the answers — people do.
