New Business in the Network of Everything” an interview of Andy Mulholland (Consulting Mag, November / December 2008). The interview is essentially part of promoting Mr. Mulholland’s new book “Mesh Collaboration.”  Here’s a piece that should inspire you to pursue this one in full.

What you really need to do is find the four people who worked on the development of the product when you need them to answer a specific question.

Btw, if you decide to read the book please come back and give us a review.
