Networks

Titel05

Networks – a term which, nowadays, is used with two different meanings. On the one hand, there is the physical level: transport, supply and communications networks convey and distribute people, goods and, most of all, information. A classic example of this type of network is undoubtedly the Internet, the backbone of today’s information and communication society. But apart from this rather technological interpretation, there is also the social dimension: networks as a form of interaction and cooperation. Partnerships between individuals, groups or entire companies, project-oriented alliances transcending national boundaries, or the worldwide formation of virtual teams – these are tried and tested strategies for meeting the challenges of an increasingly globalised economy.
