Have you considered what complexity looks like in your network or organisational system or how it could influence your Knowledge Management, Human Capital or Rapid Learning project – take a look at the video to find out?
Network analysis, as an example of a method for analysing your organisational system, can provide insights into:
- the location of silos
- the location of components, clusters and super clusters in the organisational system
- the location of super-spreaders who can help you to accelerate the absorption of quality improvements across the system
- ways to quickly sense and dampen down spreaders of bad practice
- the risk to the network (e.g. critical knowledge loss) created when Super Spreaders are removed, for example, through redundancies.
Just think about what such analysis could do to enhance you Knowledge Management or Rapid Learning programs. On the other hand, if you are making Knowledge Management, Human Capital or Rapid Learning decisions and you don’t have this information, you are basically walking across a busy road blindfolded; success is not by design but by luck and the better judgement of others.
