Description:

A powerful, visual framework helps managers discover how employees really communicate and collaborate to get work done-and helps them identify ways they can influence these social networks to improve performance and innovation.In The Hidden Power of Social Networks, Cross and Parker, experts in "social network analysis"-a technique that visually maps relationships between people in large, distributed groups-apply this powerful tool to management for the first time.Based on their in-depth study of sixty informal employee networks in well-known companies around the world, Cross and Parker show managers how to conduct a social network analysis of their organization.
