5 ways to create value from Organizational Network Analysis (ONA)
In just a couple of days, I have been asked by several people to share value propositions for using Organizational Network Analysis. These are excellent questions, because this will help an organization to define the right design and focus on the right metrics.

I am therefore sharing the five value propositions for Organizational Networks with links to some insightful article written by Jeppe Vilstrup Hansgaard.

5. LEADERSHIP TEAM RECALIBRATION
“You need to lead Leadership Forums in the same way, as you lead your organization. Just with more discipline, as you only have a short period of time to achieve the results that you need: to build a stronger Leadership network. Who needs to be connected to who? – and why?”
