The emergence of new intranet vendors into the market (particularly SharePoint- and Office365-based intranet products ) is to be celebrated. The era of custom-built SharePoint intranets was expensive and often fruitless, with way too much development being done.

    This is due to increasing connections between everyone and everything. Connected leadership is helping make the network smarter.

To deal with this complexity, organizations should loosen hierarchies and strengthen networks. This challenges command and control management as well as the concept that those in leadership positions are special.

    A big reason for this state of affairs is because digital is inherently complex in its realization, intangible by nature (thus it can be hard to study and assess), and difficult to actually understand in context since it’s now so deeply connected to everything else today.
