Summary

Globalization, networking, and new communications technology mean that traditionally-oriented companies are being replaced by new, nonlinear, "hypertext" structures. However, for many, these are still a mystery. Based on his extensive practical experience as CEO of a multinational industrial group, Jacques Chaize provides simple tools enabling all readers to better understand and live with the hypertext corporation and feel ready to take the leap into the future.
