Organizational Network Analysis: Identify And Leverage Informal Connections For HR And Business Success
|Date / Time:
In our increasingly interconnected world work no longer gets done within the confines of a single business unit, line organization, or function. Employees are asked to collaborate across boundaries, to work from home, to use company intranets to find the information that they need to do their jobs.
Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends Report for 2016 highlights the need to shift from hierarchical organizational structures to a “network of teams” and recommends organizational network analysis (ONA) as a tool to discover and leverage the existing networks and connections.
While the formal networks of an organization are clear and linear from the top down, there are other networks that are not as obvious but are nonetheless significant to the operation. This leads to questions such as:
ONA provides a way to detect and recognize the importance of the informal connections among people and organizations and to target and leverage these connections in organizational design, talent management, employee retention, succession planning, leadership development and a number of other strategic HR tasks.
- Who’s working with whom, and where do they go for support or advice?
- Who are the informal leaders and the real change agents in the organization?
- What if you could take an X-ray into the organization and see how well information flows across boundaries and find and disrupt blockages to the spread of innovation and new ideas?
Join us on when presenter Patti Anklam, principal consultant of Net Work, will explain how you can use ONA to increase your company’s success. You’ll learn how to identify goals and how they map to the HR strategy, through the identification of target employee groups to participate in the analysis and the means by which the data is collected.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
