We often take decisions by using the wrong or outdated tools and theories. Network science and tools are readily available to inform decisions in different sectors and organizations. Their adoption for decision-making should be further promoted.

Nowadays, any organization should employ network scientists/analysts who are able to map and analyse complex systems that are of importance to the organization (e.g. the organization itself, its activities, a country’s economic activities, transportation networks, research networks).Interconnectivity is beneficial but also brings in vulnerability: if you and I are connected we can share resources; meanwhile your problems can become mine and vice versa.The concept of “crystallized imagination” refers to things that are first in our head and then become reality. This concept can be turned into network applied research on economic complexity of a country’s economic activities and development prospects.

Network Thinking: Interview with Valdis Krebs

Network Thinking: Interview with Valdis Krebs | Collaboration | Scoop.it

How can we all become better network thinkers?

 

1. recognize that you are embedded in multiple networks: work, family, friends, hobby, sports, religion, neighborhood, etc.


2. “Connect on your similarities and benefit from your differences.” Think of the introductions you can make to benefit those around you, including yourself.


3. Practice simple network weaving. You do this around triangles — social triangles. A knows B and C knows B. B realizes that A and C could benefit from knowing each other and makes the introduction. This is called “closing the triangle” — all three people, A, B, and C now know each other. Look for opportunities to close triangles around yourself.
