SYMPOSIUM: The Competitive Advantage of Networked Organizations

January 22-24, 1995
Los Angeles, CA

Co-sponsored by...
The UCLA Anderson Graduate School of Management
Office of Executive Education, and
TRW Space & Electronics Group

The symposium content is case-based, presented through an integration of
theory and practice. The business cases will cover the emergence of social
and work networks within and between organizations. The focus of the cases
will be on improving the human side of reengineering, organizational
learning, knowledge exchange, and cross-cultural communication. Attendees
will learn how to 'see' what was formerly invisible in their
organizations--the work relationships, information flows, personal networks,
knowledge exchanges and decision-making processes that have emerged through
the course of business.
