If you want innovation at your company, you can’t just rely on the information and ideas circulating in the brains of your current employees. There are more smart people outside your company than inside it. So encourage your employees to be active on social media and leverage their collective professional networks in order to access the brains of smart people everywhere. We call this process “network intelligence,” and it’s a key part of a company’s alliance with its people. Learn the secrets of network intelligence in this presentation.
