Social Network (SN) – is a major capital of the company. They may help to leverage real people’s interactions for everything from trend spotting by scouring public conversations to identifying internal experts within a department to ensuring that a manager actually results in cooperation among employees.

11. Watch Your Back!

Paradox, but only few companies have full-scale risk-management program. Don’t forget, that business is like driving a car: you can go fast only if you know you have good brakes!

12. Management and the Self

New generation style of management – is self-management and self-coaching. You can’t change the others and the world around without changing yourself.  So start with your own consciousness!
