Networks don’t just happen - they need to support from a web of resources and infrastructure.
Networks are complex structures. Even if members are committed and work hard, it can be a tough task to support a network to thrive. The best way for people to feel connected to their network is to have a variety of ways they can participate. This means well-coordinated face-to-face events, online meetups and remote working platforms are central to helping a network thrive.
How do you choose the best mix of infrastructure and resources for your network? It depends on what you are trying to achieve.
We discussed, workshopped and researched ways of supporting networks so that they have the necessary infrastructure and resources. Read our tools and resources below, and let us know what you think!
