Abstract

Disclosed is a method for classification, storage, access, and maintenance of "strategic networks" such that they can be effectively used in software engineering work (and through extension, in the work of any professional discipline, such as the medical or legal profession). To perform their work with excellence and build their careers, software engineers (and perhaps other professionals) not only need competence in their specific jobs, but also need to have networks of relationships with other computer professionals who can help them successfully achieve their career goals. These networks of relationships can be called "strategic networks."
