XXI Century Expert Team Building and Management

About the Book

ConnectingTheDots series, vol. 01

This mini-book, subtitled "XXI Century Expert Team Building and Management", is focused on talent management.

An attempt to challenge you to re-assess how you collect knowledge and allow those that are recognized as "experts" to interact with you, both in your personal and business life. 

The aim is to improve your ability to obtain the best of both worlds: doing what you do with your own resources, involving those (internal, external) specialists if, when, and for how long needed. 

This short book (or extended essay) is just part of a series of collected thoughts and analysis.

Focus: the impact of social and technological change on traditional management practices.
