Check out this month's performance pointer from Penumbra Group, your best resource for training and development solutions.
How are your networking skills? Every team is its
own network - one that connects the members to
each other and the outside world. The strength of it
depends on the freedom and flow of information
Imagine taking a real-time picture of your
organization – not from a traditional org chart
perspective, but from a communications
perspective. You could see who receives information
and who passes it along, how it gets passed within
and outside the company, and the “black holes”
where information comes into a department and
never leaves. Organizational Network Analysis
creates the picture and it can be very eye opening.
Do you have a culture that rewards the sharing of
knowledge and learning or do you have a culture that
treats information as a scarcity or a political “chip”?
Organizational Network Analysis can help you when
planning re-structures, promotions, mergers &
acquisitions, and layoffs.
