Networks have always been something that have interested me. In particular, I have always been fascinated with the underlying social networks that drive businesses. Early on, in my research and study of networks, I focused on the social networks and the constructs of employee relationships within a company. At the time I was working for a large manufacturing organization and worked in organizational empowerment. I wanted to map the micro-networks and nodes of influence that formed the communication networks in the company, and I wanted to understand the drivers of those systems.
