What is This new Networked Economy?

The  Historical Work Concept vs the New Networked Employment Model

Nowadays, much of the discourse about how the Network Economy is changing the concept of work culture focuses on anecdotes about individuals who are modifying the time-honored model and, most certainly, the ongoing arguements over the benefits of business outsourcing and the emerging online freelance market.

Now a larger, more substantial alteration of employment relationships is now just beginning to come about. Companies are beginning to realize that knowledge is advancing and accumulating more rapidly in the latest external network than in the ancient internal closed model.  The ability to tap into talent and knowledge streams beyond the bounds of organizational boundaries is becoming necessary for companies striving to remain relevant and competitive.  And as a consequence, they are re-thinking their more familiar HR and IP solutions, as Apple and their iOS, to align with this new business reality.

These implications are even more significant for the individual;  businesses, who provide the most established platform on which to build careers, are now re-defining their relationship with talent and knowledge, introducing uncertainty into what previously was a straight path to fulfilling careers and long-term financial well-being.  Also, the dynamic of the new idea of the network economy places demands on the pace of knowledge – and experience-acquisition that individuals will find difficult to find in a time tested single employment relationship.

The Cycle of Success

Regardless of uncertainties, these developments are creating real opportunities on both sides of the talent equation. These recently available developments are now creating very real business opportunities for both business and worker: companies need to stay competitive, and will continue to search out and pay a premium for knowledge and know-how that add value and help distinguish their products and services;  individuals who want to provide their energies where they will be most effective can bypass the progressively more unsure corporate path and take direct control of their careers.

The development of the network economy has the capacity to develop robust virtuous cycles “repeating sequences of positive events that reinforce themselves through a feedback loop” to develop the interests of both individuals and organizations.

The Maven-link platform weaves together interrelated and mutually reinforcing professional, financial, and social cycles that improve both clients and individuals.

The Cycle of Finance

The financial cycle provides opportunities for both clients and consultants to continually increase ROI through more efficient projects and expand revenue opportunities through clearly demonstrated value. For most clients, the success of a project is typically measured initially by the degree to which the project deliverables meet expectations for quality, time, and cost; and in the larger analysis, by their associated ROI.  Mavenlink’s built-in project management tools help simplify the business process from proposal to payment.  Clients can propose, source, and run simultaneous concurrent projects easily from a single place.  As successes accumulate and add value, and ROI compounds, funding for additional projects is easier to sell and close. Internal and External project experience and data also enable clients to gain additional value from past planning and executing future projects.

For consultants, multiple project successes with clients result in improved revenue opportunities through healthier business relationships, greater confidence and credibility.  On top of that, consultants can leverage current and past success with one client when seeking new business from an potential client.  As time passes, consultants are able to deliver value more profitably through increased information and re-use, generating enhanced ROI for themselves and for clients.

The Experience Cycle

The knowledge cycle explains the cyclical growth in clients’ and consultants’ abilities to access and participate in information streams.  Just about every project requires know-how and expertise in a particular domain or set of domains; to the extent that every single project is different, each is an opportunity for developing new knowledge.

With every successive project, consultants gain additional knowledge and skills, or apply existing ones in a new way.  Brand New clients, business partners, and collaborators all provide expanded opportunities to exchange knowledge.

Even highly professional skills, which may apply only to one client, contribute to general wisdom that helps consultants refine their “craft” and develop better methods and methods.

Clients gain the specific knowledge and competence that they contract for, but also acquire experience and authenticity that help them recognize and realize additional opportunities.  Clients and consultants who work together on successive projects benefit from an increased understanding of certain business goals, client needs, operational tools, organizational structures and personalities.

The Feedback and Reputation Cycle

The reputation cycle is the social-networking aspect of Mavenlink; the virtuous cycle associated with social media is a major reason for its explosive growth.  With every collaborative project, clients and consultants have the chance to provide mutual feedback, which becomes part of their living profile.     Positive feedback from productive projects enhances your reputation and improvements your presence, which helps you extend your network and attract more business partners.

A favorable reputation helps you connect with high-quality projects and providers, and inspires confidence in both parties, streamlining the development of new associations.  In addition to this, your collaborators’ reputations reflect positively on your reputation, helping you to further expand your personal network, collaborate on more projects, and get more favorable feedback.
