FOUNDATIONS OF NETWORK THEORY

ORGANIZATIONAL DENSITY
  • It is a good proxy of the speed at which information circulates within the organization. It can be computed as the sum of existing links within a group or subgroup / maximum number of possible links).
THE CONCEPT OF BETWEENESS
  • It is a complex calculation that helps  investigating the level of centrality.
  • It measures how much an Employee/Team is in the middle of the workflow and connects different actors in the organization that would otherwise be disconnected.
THE CONCEPT OF CLOSENESS
  • Analyzes the length of the shortest path between the actor examined and all other nodes in the organization’s network
  • The more central the node is, the closer it is to all the others
  • If this index is = 1, it means that the node has direct connections with all the others (one-to-one)
THE ROLE OF MUTUAL LINKS
  • Mutual links are relationships that have been reported by a person and confirmed by co-workers.
  • A high percentage of confirmed links means that the relationships between colleagues are clear and that efficiency is high.
