Being specific about where to focus your attention and spend your time is essential in creating an innovation-capable culture.

Social Network Analysis:

How will you focus your innovation efforts?

Social network analysis views social relationships in terms of network theory. In its simplest form, a social network is a map of specified ties, such as friendship or knowledge transferal, between the nodes being studied. The nodes to which an individual is connected are the social contacts of that individual. The network can also be used to measure social capital – the value that an individual gets from the social network due to their participation and engagement. By conducting a social network analysis we can identify the key roles in your organization to improve innovation effectiveness: experts, brokers, and advocates.
