A Survey Tool for Organizational Network AnalysisAs outlined in an earlier post, most, if not all, of the data for an organizational network analysis come from a survey customized for the organization in question.
Bruce Hoppe of Connective Associates has made a user-friendly survey utility available for anyone to use. When you look at Hoppe's survey, you will see that it traces three types of interactions between people:
- One person providing information to another that the latter needs to do his/her job.
- One person providing another with technical advice to help the latter solve a work-related problem.
- One person providing another with personal work-related advice to help the latter deal with a difficult situation at work.
