What makes companies network-competent in digital times? The resilience researcher and philosopher Harald Katzmair on social network logics in politics and business."Digitalization with its flickering clock speeds shortens the perceived "shadow of the future" of us all. To build trust, relationships need a future horizon, the feeling of a common path. But this is also increasingly lacking in the economy: what counts,
is the here and now, the current quarter. In the future, transactions can be processed via the block chain,
without having to trust each other personally. This has a massive impact on relationship cultures. I am just waiting for the Tinder for business contacts,"
