    • Business are adopting network business models. Those that can’t or won’t, have or soon will, go away. What about communities? Those that can’t or won’t, have or soon will, go away .

      • Behaving Differently
      • Working Differently
    • Types of Community Issues From Heifetz, R. (1998). Leadership without Easy Answers . Belknap Press.
    • Types of Community Issues
      • Not All Issues Are Complex But Many Are
      What complex issues are you facing in your community? Who is “in charge” of these complex issues?
    • Addressing Complex Civic Issues Requires Networked Models of Leadership
      • No single person, organization, or institution has all the answers
      • No one is in charge
      • Mass participation AND strong leadership is needed

    • Social Network Theory Can Give Us Some Insights
      • Social Anthologist J.A. Barnes coined the term in his 1954, Class and Committees in a Norwegian Island Parrish .
    • Social Network Theory
      • Social network theory views social relationships in terms of nodes and links. Nodes are the individual actors within the networks, and links are the relationships between the actors
    • Six Degrees of Separation
      • Almost everyone has a “small world” story. What’s yours?
    • Social Network Theory Applications
      • Sociology
      • Anthropology
      • Information Technology
      • Organizational Development
      • Community and Economic Development
    • Building Community by Building Networks
      • Assumptions
      • Communities are built on connections.
      • Better connections usually mean better opportunities.
    • Building Community by Building Networks
      • Questions
      • How do we build connected communities that can take advantage of opportunities?
      • How does success emerge from complex interactions?
    • Two Components of a Network
      • Nodes
      • People, groups, or organizations
      • Links
      • Relationships, flows, or transactions
    • What’s the Value of ONE Cell Phone?
    • What’s the Value of TEN Cell Phones? What’s the “value” of the people in this room today when we each bring our own networks that can be linked and leveraged?
    • Network Building Exercise
      • Exchange business cards with someone you do not know well
      • Find one thing you have in common
      • Decide on a follow-up activity
        • phone call
        • information exchange
        • introduction to third party
    • ACEnet Case Study
      • How civic networks are transforming the economy of Appalachian Ohio
    • Scattered Fragments
    • ACEnet: Scattered Fragments
      • Began weaving the network by asking questions:
      • From whom do you get new ideas that benefit your work?
      • From whom do you access expertise that improves your operations?
      • With whom do you collaborate?
    • ACEnet: Creating New Hubs
      • Kitchen Incubator became a hub for restaurateurs and farmers
    • Hub and Spokes
    • ACEnet: Multi-Hub
      • Farmers Market
      • Outdoor Café
      • Restaurant Association
    • Multi-Hub
    • ACEnet: Action at the Periphery
      • Developed the Appalachian Ohio Regional Investment Coalition to bring in additional resources.
    • Core/Periphery Network
    • Core/Periphery Network
      • Core includes the key community members
      • Periphery includes three groups of nodes usually tied to the core with looser ties:
        • Those new to the community working their way to the core
        • Bridges to diverse communities elsewhere
        • Unique resources that reside outside the community
    • Civic Network Exercise
      • Consider a network you are part of. Which of the four phases do you think it is in and why? The phases are (1) Scattered Fragments, (2) Single-Hub and Spoke, (3) Multi-Hub Small World, and (4) Core-Periphery.
          • Scattered Fragments
          • Single Hub-and-Spoke
          • Multi-Hub
          • Core-Periphery
      • What steps could be taken to take this network to the next phase. Even if the one you identified is a Stage 4: Core-Periphery Network , what could you do to expand the periphery?
      • Using the network identified above as an example or another in which you are or have been a Network Weaver , how could you transition to a Network Facilitator ?
    • Effective Civic Leaders Are Network Weavers
      • Network “weaving” is not just networking or schmoozing!
    • Seven Levels of Network Weaving
      • Introducing A and B in person and offering a collaboration opportunity to get A and B started in a successful partnership.
      • Introducing A and B in person and contacting A and B afterward to nurture the connection.
      • Introducing A and B in person.
      • Doing a conference call introduction of A and B
      • Doing an email introduction of A and B
      • Suggesting to A that A should talk with B and then contacting B to let B know to expect a call from A
      • Suggesting to A that A should talk with B
    • Effective Civic Leaders More from Weavers to Facilitators
      • A facilitator identifies new weavers who will eventually take over most of the network building and maintenance.
      • If the change is not made, the network remains dependent on the central weaver and his/her organization.
      • This transition is needed for the network to increase its scale, impact and reach.
