Rise of the Organizational Graph

Traditional org charts answer only one question: Where do I fall in the company hierarchy? But an employee needs to know far more to be successful. What teams will I be a part of? Who can mentor me? What internal processes do I need to master?

4 Techniques for Powerful Network Analysis

The huge amount of data being produced makes it difficult to separate what’s important from noise. Once you’ve created a graph visualization of your big data, how do you know what to look for? To focus on what’s important, we use four graph analysis and design techniques to reveal connections in the data and patterns in the structure.

“Successful networks are designed—they don’t just happen.
Knowing a network’s essential design issues—and how to make and when to change design choices—is a crucial part of the practice of building effective social-impact networks.”
