Capability Building

The Commons seeks to help organizations build capability through a variety of webinars, videos, articles, events and courses. Only by identifying, understanding and harnessing the power of informal networks, can an organization or individual drive the results they desire. The following two courses address these challenges head-on.

Overall Program Description

Network analytics are fast becoming an essential competency for organizations that want to understand how their informal networks function and manage them to drive change, fuel innovation and develop talent. This series of six webinars will provide you with foundational skills in designing, conducting and managing organizational network analyses. Instructors will share models, techniques, and success factors honed from years of experience across a wide range of practical, business-driven applications.

The sessions include how to manage an ONA to maximize business impact; how to choose the best approach for data capture from both survey and social media-based options; designing effective instruments for data capture; generating visual and quantitative analytics; running predictive analytics from network data, and communicating network insights to stakeholders. Also included is step-by-instruction on how to use three of the leading network analysis software packages: UciNet, NetDraw, and NodeXL.

Overall Program Description

The collaborative intensity of work has exploded over the past decade, making networks of both formal and informal relationships increasingly the means by which employees innovate, execute and thrive at work. Unfortunately, most people have only a vague idea of the networks around them and often don’t invest in relationships in ways that can boost success. Contrary to popular belief, performance and well-being are not enhanced by simply building a big network, but rather by establishing one that is managed across five benefits that effective networks confer.

In this five-module course, Rob Cross will review network dimensions that two decades of research have shown to be critical to success and help you build a personalized action plan to optimize connectivity.
