Organizational Network Analysis (ONA)
Digital technologies and new business models have hyperconnected the global economy turning it into a complex environment. In an effort to survive in this faster-paced, more disruptive context, organizations are transforming themselves; they are increasing relying on networks of informal relationships (e.g., matrix designs, virtual teams, strategic partnerships) rather than formal organizational structures to accomplish goals. Leaders typically lack visibility to their informal networks, which means they make decisions with incomplete information.
Organizational network analysis has emerged as a tool to illuminate and analyze organization’s critical informal networks. Using ONA, leaders can understand how employees truly work together to solve, problems, make decisions, and share information. This understanding can be translated into real business insights and answers questions such as:
– how are different functions collaborating to develop new products and services?
– who are the organization’s hidden leaders?
– which employees are best positioned to serve as catalysts for change?
CLA’s course on ONA helps serves as a foundation for understanding and applying this tool in business settings.
