Abstract
The paper aims to make the concept of networks clearer, and in particular to make a case that group-forming networks are the key to enhancing military capability within network enabled operations. The complexity of networks is underlined by the fact the network science remains in its infancy – despite the rapid growth of a literature and the increasing salience of research devoted to this area, it is also clear that there is considerable knowledge of many types of networks that can provide powerful cross-fertilization for developing a theory of human networks. The concepts integrated within this paper include:; - A tentative network typology and topology; - Group-forming networks, customized response, and heterarchy; - Contexts and boundaries appropriate for different networks; - Fundamental organizational metaphor shaping understanding; - and Networked individualism, globalization; and peer production.
