Understanding the Relationship Between Network Connections & Collaboration


An interesting discussion by Jon Mertz regarding the impact that connectivity can have upon collaboration, and "trust" as a sweet spot in identifying the optimum level of connectivity to produce the necessary level of collaboration.


This reminds me very much of a paper that I read in 2005, "Social Capital, Networks, and Knowledge Transfer" (Andrew C. Inkpen and Eric W. K. Tsang) which discussed how social capital within a network impacts the transfer of knowledge between the various members of the network, and that certain conditions optimize knowledge transfer within a network and between networks.


I think that there is one additional aspect not necessarily considered by this article -- the quality of the network connections.  That perhaps is one important consideration that is often misunderstood in a world where as Jon describes it, "we are hyper-connected today" and surrounded by metrics to validate our connectivity.  We're typically lacking any clear way to evaluate the efficacy of those connections.


This article though I think provides a very clear visual to help understand the mutual dependency between network connections and resulting collaboration capabilities or opportunities.

Mindy M Walker's curator insight, August 2, 2013 10:55 AM

Raises a good question about how we can believe that connectedness - especially in greater numbers - will naturally result in productive collaborations. Connectedness can be achieved by a Like here, a RT or a couple of clicks. Collaboration requires actual commitment, communication and follow-througworkout takes work to cultivathe and sustain over time.
