Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure?

Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure? | Organization Network Analysis | Scoop.it

Organizational design has a huge impact on decision-making and collaboration, and both reflects, and often creates, the level of collaboration and autonomy with and amongst the workforce. Culture may eat strategy for lunch but decision-making, reporting and budgeting structures can either birth or strangle both culture and strategy with both hands tied behind its back.


At this stage we have four primary organizational models along a continuum from command and control to cooperative and anarchic. From GM to Valve we might call it, with a Basecamp and a Zappos thrown in to complete the picture. Each has strengths and weaknesses.

Modelling social networks reveals how information spreads

Modelling social networks reveals how information spreads | Organization Network Analysis | Scoop.it
The way information spreads through society has changed significantly over the past decade with the advent of online social networking.

 

In the context of history, connectors are among the people who are pioneers of social change. We need only look back at political change within global society today to find examples of connectors that played a significant role in affecting that change at the time.

Experiments of this type (perhaps on a larger scale) could help develop our understanding of how our society functions in the 21st century. The speed at which information can spread, and the fidelity of the spread of that information, is important to perhaps all aspects of society.

In the experiment, if individuals are allowed to change to color accroding to the neighborhood, it may be more interesting. I think the evolutionary game dynamics on complex provides a proper model to characterize the above diffusion process.
