Leveraging Networks: Recommended Reading of Current Top Selling Books

Leveraging networks has taken on ever increasing importance in a constantly fluctuating marketplace. BMasterlogousinesses cannot rely on their usual operations to maintain success, as other players have the opportunity to grow at a rate that may not have been possible 15 or 20 years ago.

With the digital transformation comes many benefits for a business in any industry. Processes speed up, communication is easier, and a wider marketplace opens up. But it also means quick adaptation is a necessity, as companies can get left in the dust by competitors in a matter of months.

Keeping that in mind, here is a list of the top three selling books on leveraging networks. Business Professionals who are interested in innovation management and change management will find these books very useful.

1. Superconnector: Stop Networking and Start Building Business Relationships that Matter

Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh take a unique approach with this book, encouraging readers to ditch the typical advice given about networking.
