English term or phrase: mandala
The meltdown of old organizational forms from a hierarchical wiring diagram into the mandala of a web, along with the ascendance of teamwork, increases the importance of traditional people skills such us building bonds, influence, and collaboration.

Finnish translation:omit
Explanation:
"Mandala" is a Sanskrit word and is not translated. It refers to certain circular forms in Hindu and Buddhist religious art, as well as to a Jungian archetype. It adds nothing to this sentence —which is confused, badly written, and says very little— and my advice is that you translate as if it read "... into a web ...".
