  If you are a node in knowledge-sharing network, what is important?

If you think about yourself as a node in knowledge-sharing network, what is important (having in mind both: your own interests and being a part of the network)?

In our opinion, the pain won't be worth the gain if collaborative work practices aren't already inherent within the organization.

Would be nice to see the report, but $895.00 is a bit too much. Still, the main thing is simple: technology is not likely to change the way people work.
