Networks and networking – at their core – are designed to compound or multiply effectiveness or results through the power of multiple people and the resources of those in the network. The terms networking and networks are obsolete not only because they have become buzzwords, stretched and pulled into whatever shape is desired, but also because networks and networking typically means few limitations, the more the merrier, a shotgun effect.
Most often the results of any given network are a function or reflection of the sheer numbers involved in that network. In this model there are intrinsic side effects, including chaos, lack of focus, lack of defined structure, lack of unity, and so many more negatives.To achieve the highest levels of effectiveness and the strongest results, a network must have clearly defined boundaries and balance…it must be exact! In an Exact Network, each member is selected or recruited based upon their particular expertise, talent, and necessary contribution.
