What is Organizational Network Analysis?

Organizational Network Analysis is the new starting point for building efficient organizations

This methodology enables users to know and map the real functioning of organizations by analyzing the work relationships and the level of interaction among resources.
Through such informal connections (across company charts), information, problem-solving, operational support, effectiveness, productivity and ideas travel.
The Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) visualizes and interprets the characteristics of the interactions (kind of, density, strength, centrality), the type (nature and quantity) and the performer’s identity (broker, hub, bridge) to spot and interpret the relationship and exchange of value in organisational and business processes.

Our Approach

HOW4 transforms traditional Network Analysis into a reliable Management Tool

HOW4 features a state-of-the-art platform that allows network analysis in large and complex organizations based on the analysis of the working interactions among people thanks to a very short survey (4 questions in the basic module).
Our tool can be used to map how your company really works as a whole as well as at the individual level or by organizational units.
It provides 2 main modules according to your mapping and analysis goals: HOW4 and HOW Targets (optional).
Tailored synthesis indicators facilitate understanding of the evidences according to key management views.
What does this mean?
It means that in addition to relational maps, a “new” and massive set of data (relating to the role and organizational behavior for each resource/team) is provided which helps build appropriate quantitative indices and allows the following:
– In-depth analysis of how the organization works,
– Identifying and understanding its strong and weak points,
– Monitoring evolution over time.

We have 2 main modules. Select one or both, depending on your mapping and analysis goals.
