Imagine two very different substances, graphite and diamond. At the atomic level, these two substances are identical, being composed of carbon. It is only when we consider the relationships between those carbon atoms that we have a fuller understanding of the properties of the final substance. The properties of organizations, like graphite and diamond, rely not only on the individual employee ‘atoms’, but also the working relationships and dynamics between them.

What is Network Centrality?

Network Centrality is a collection of statistical and graphical tools to observe your Organisation’s informal network. Network Centrality provides graphical and statistical insight into the opaque social ‘infrastructure’, highlighting areas that require improvement and increasing the efficiency and performance of the organisation.

Network Centrality Pulse and Network Centrality Monitor

Network Centrality Pulse is of use to a company when they are facing organisational difficulties, but aren’t entirely sure what the nature of the problem is or its cause. Network Centrality Pulse is therefore a diagnostic tool, or an organizational ‘health-check’. Network Centrality Monitor is useful for organisations looking to track their employee networks over time, for example, to see the impact of a newly implemented change management initiative. Network Centrality Monitor is therefore an observation tool, as well as a benchmarking metric to determine the efficiency of ongoing procedures in the organization.

Both Network Centrality Pulse and Monitor will provide your company with formal reports, comprised of:

Organizational Maps

Graphical visualizations of your employee network and their work relationship networks.

Individual Level Metrics

Statistical scores and identification of each employee as a Key Player (important), Broker (innovative), Pulse Taker (influential).

Network Level Metrics

Statistical scores of the network’s Diameter, Density, Fragmentation and Cross-Group Connectivity.

Action Points

Bespoke process solutions for any issues identified. Provide recommendations and specific action points to bridge the gap.

How does Network Centrality work?

Network Centrality is a collection of mathematical and visualisation tools with its roots in analytical sociology, psychology and graph theory. Typically, Network Centrality follows five stages to completion: Objectives, Surveys, Data Processing, Analysis, and Solutions.

Objectives

Our analysts will discuss with you your organization’s aims and objectives, and ensure that Network Centrality is aligned to your needs as an organization.

Surveys

Questionnaires are sent directly via email to all employees of interest in the company. We tailor questions specifically to address your needs.

Data Processing

Our Consultants apply statistical and graphical techniques to format the data from the completed questionnaires.

Analysis

The data is analyzed to determine network and individual level metrics and graph visualization.

Solutions

Results are interpreted to identify development opportunities and provide action points addressing your organization’s needs and objectives.

Reporting

Our customised reporting system offers complete flexibility with supporting the assessment and diagnostics process whether it be individual to management level. We offer both in-depth and bespoke reports to support the development needs of your organisation's key talents and leaders as well as complete data analysis for stakeholders.
