    #2 - The True Power of Networks

    Networks shape all our lives - consisting of the web of relationships supporting the many
    functions we fulfill in life and at work, from taking decisions to socializing, innovating, planning,
    learning, and developing careers. And relationship networks appear increasingly relevant today
    due to the exponential growth of interconnectedness between systems, societies, and economies
    – with social and competitive processes occurring in an increasingly ‘small’ world. In this
    episode of Story Scanner, Giuseppe Soda, Dean of SDA Bocconi, helps us understand more
    about the ‘power’ of networks and their relevance in the business world, including insight from a particular study on their influence on innovation and creative processes. Whilst Sonja Opper,
    Global Strategy professor at Bocconi, discusses with us about networks in different contexts
    around the world and a study of hers on the effects of CEOs’ social networks on business
    strategy.
