This workshop provides an overview of applied social network analysis techniques in the fields of organizational development, change management, and people analytics.

By the end of it, you will be able to understand the basics of using relational data and making informed choices about mapping formal and informal communication networks, identifying influencers in organizations, and learning how to improve and further enable them to empower people in your organization.

We begin with the practical opportunities and challenges in working with survey and employee data, and then introduce you to network structures, actors’ positions within networks, and the implications of these for different behaviors. Towards the end of the session, we will cover the basics of actionable insights from organizational network analysis.

The session combines workshop-style activities, using real-world examples of organizations that have used organizational network analysis to solve their change management problems.

This course is for those who have heard about network analysis and think it might be a useful toolkit in their own practice, or in other organizations.

No prior knowledge is required, but participation at the Social Network Analysis Methodology Session is a plus.
