The Seventh Sense: Power and Profit in the Age of Networks
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council
From the financial system to politics to education, ours is a networked society—always on, open, and linked. The digital revolution and the instantaneous connections it enables has resulted in sprawling networks of people, data, and money.

Cropping up like the heads of a hydra, networks may be ushering in a societal shift on the scale of the Industrial Revolution. Are networks unstoppable and if so, what must companies and business leaders know about the promise and risks of their transformative power? How can the "seventh sense" prepare leaders for the age of networks?
