In the name of the Mighty

FASresearch has been observing the most powerful people in Austria for many years. The result, the so-called "network map of power", is continuously calibrated together with PantarheiAdvisors. The 2019 map shows the structure of the 400 most powerful companies and organisations in Austria: who is connected to whom and how, where strategic nodes are formed, resources are shared and a future impact is created. One development is surprising in the current edition: the strong fragmentation. "In the past, there were many great personalities who held civil society, government and politics together. Today there are only a few of these horizontal networkers left," says Harald Katzmair.
