'Pedro Pablo Ramos is shedding new light on how organizations can transform themselves and adapt to the Knowledge Worker Age. He reveals how every company is a network although most of them are not aware of it a social network that links people, teams processes, activities and information.

Covey, International Bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
