Using Social Network Analysis in Social Business Design

Skilful Minds

My previous post discussed the Open/Closed culture fallacy in social business design. Overall, as the post's subject indicates, my interest is in showing how social network analysis, applied to the ecosystems of organizations, can assist us in applying social business design in a manner that avoids the fallacy of open/closed business cultures. I contended that leaders of large corporations are typically unable to answer the key strategic questions posed by David Armano in an important post recently.

Make Your Social Network A Learning Tool

CLO Magazine

By understanding how informal networks communicate and collaborate, social network analysis can facilitate more effective learning program design and promote more innovative collaboration. Behind every official organization chart is a web of informal networks composed of individual relationships. Valuable resources and information flow through these networks in various ways, often outside any prescribed path or hierarchy. By deliberately facilitating connections, these networks can drive business goals and improve strategic decision-making.

Hamel's mention of "natural hierarchies" as a most adaptive form of organization reminds me of what we learn in the study of Social Networking Analysis ( SNA ) and Social Capital Asset ( SCA ). In Gary Hamel's most recent book "The Future of Management," Harvard Business School Press, he expresses his view of the future of management. He suggests that in the future, enterprises' organizations will resemble "community-driven" models of Web 2.0. He says "everyone has a voice," which is good for all organizations.

Why are many of us in businesses surprised that social networking is so popular? His presentation on Social Networking Analysis ( SNA ) created a vortex and black hole in my mind and heart. We know the power of networking and how our networks impact our ability to deliver results.
