Network Research Centers
January 1, 2008
The transformation from a function and process model is in full swing. Network thinking, orientation, analysis, visualizations and optimization are rapidly subsuming the function and process mentality. The network mindset is rising fast for organizations, businesses, industries, the environment and civil society.
One leading indicator of the enormous importance of network analysis to people, business, government, militaries and society is the explosion of network research centers at major universities. Below, is a quick, unscientific, anecdotal sample.

This is an extremely broad basis for applied network research, analysis and visualization. There are enormous grants from governments and corporate in value science, markets and networks. They are the key leading indicators that value networks and value networks analysis thinking and adoption has sharply accelerated for the enterprise, institutions and commercial organizations of all stripes.

- I have been a long time reader of the ona-prac e-forum, and have been aware of the increasing relevance of the study of , well I will call it, systems of interactions.I am looking for comment and perhaps publication of a paper I am developing.
