Managing the Hyper-Networked "Instant Messaging" Generation in the Work Force

Eric K. Clemons & Steve Barnett & JoAnn Magdoff

Managing the Hyper-Networked "Instant Messaging" Generation in the Work Force by Eric K. Clemons & Steve Barnett & JoAnn Magdoff

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

The instant messaging generation, wired and integrated into broad, flat networks almost from birth, will not function as their predecessors did when injected into the social networks that form their professional organizations. IM'ers are creating their own network styles and content, as well as their own informal, back-channel networks, different from those of their more senior coworkers, and more compatible with their personal styles and loyalties. If their...

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Although any manager would recognize the importance of "networking" in finding, developing, and retaining employees, human resource management traditionally has focused on individuals. In this chapter, the authors point out that core HR processes such as recruitment and hiring, training and development, performance management, and retention all depend on networks. They consider the importance of weak ties in matching employees with jobs and "structural holes"...

Artificial intelligence (AI) offers computational methodologies for modeling systems, which can be valuable in understanding networks. In this chapter, the author examines several types of applications of these methods in exploring how the behavior of individual agents leads to outcomes across networks. For example, he considers how one system, based on a Prisoner's Dilemma that provides a higher payoff for players who don't cooperate, can result in a surprising...

Global networks of firms are rapidly replacing top-down, hierarchical organizations.

As terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda have been transformed from hierarchical organizations to more fluid networks, countering terrorism requires an understanding of networks.

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Information about life-and-death matters such as ways to attain good health or prevent disease is often diffused through informal social networks.

In this chapter, the authors explore the nature of and impacts of informal social networks in reducing fertility and HIV...

Human knowledge and traditions can persist long after their relevance disappears, particularly in an environment of rapid change. Organizational routines often continue in force long after memory of their purpose has been lost. But memory is rarely lost entirely. It usually lingers, in distributed fragments, in an organization's social networks and can, when needed, be reassembled. This chapter examines the role of such networks in the process of memory loss...

Infectious diseases are complex, interdependent events that can be described as networks over enormous scales of time and distance from the molecular to the societal, from the local microenvironment to the global stage.

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Networks increase interdependencies, which creates challenges for managing risks. This is especially apparent in areas such as security and enterprise risk management, where the actions of a single player in an interconnected network can wreak havoc on everyone in the network. The network, in this case, is only as strong as its weakest link. There are related problems in encouraging investments for prevention and protection, because the expected payoffs from...

Although networks in key business areas such as communications, supply chains, R&D, and sales are designed to improve the flow of information, people, or goods, they can also be used to improve the "peripheral vision" of the organization.

Telecommunications is a networked business, yet it traditionally has resisted a network-based view in its strategies and business models. In this chapter, Kevin Werbach explores this paradox, contrasting the worldview of Monists such as AT&T, who see the infrastructure as inseparable from the network, and Dualists such as Google, who see the network and its applications as distinct from the underlying infrastructure. Not surprisingly, AT&T is a proponent of...

Zott and Amit explore the role of business models in creating value through networks. They review earlier, firm-centric views of value creation, including Porter's value chain, the resource-based view, and the transaction costs approach. They point out that business models go well beyond classic views of network theory (e.g., topography and structure) and include notions of purpose, acceptance, fairness, coherence, and viability. Based on their earlier framework...

Most companies realize the need to "look outside" for innovation. However, few have a clear understanding about how they can make such a shift toward network-centric innovation--an innovation strategy that is centered on external networks and communities. Managers need more than anecdotal success stories about externally focused innovation, and they need more specific guidance than the "one size fits all" prescriptions of open innovation.

A core objective of the World Bank Group (WBG) has been to support the flow of private investment for development; guarantees and insurance have been among the instruments that the Group has used to...

Concerns about preference erosion became an important point of debate in the the WTO Doha Development Agenda negotiations. Since the late 1990s, major OECD countries have significantly increased the scope and coverage of unilateral preferential regimes for the least developed...

David S. Cohen

The Talent Edge: A Behavioral Approach to Hiring, Developing, and Keeping Top Performers by David S. CohenA practical step-by-step approach to hiring the right person.

Every hiring manager knows that the traditional hiring and interviewing process is a poor tool for predicting organizational fit and future on-the-job success. Behavioral interviewing can improve your chances of picking the right candidate two to five times over traditional processes. It focuses on how the candidate works rather than on skills, qualifications, and impressions.

The Talent Edge shows how you can develop a concrete understanding of what your own top performers do differently than the majority of their peers, and how to...
