  10. 10. • Profitability: Profitability measures the added value of an organization in comparing the cost of its resources with that of the products and/or services. • Utilization: Utilization focuses on the extent to which company resources are employed at any given time. • Quality: Quality has been defined variously as „conformance to standards” as well as „client satisfaction‟ • Innovation: Innovation can be understood in the context of an organization‟s ability to react to real or perceived changes in the market or in the economy. • Passion: Passion represents the affective response of people to their work environment. • Effectiveness: Effectiveness can be viewed as an output-input ratio that addresses the question of “doing the right things” to meet customer needs and objectives.

  15. 15. What does KM mean? Patti Anklam The Social-Network Toolkit Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  16. 16. Knowledge • Knowledge is not only history: it is a dynamic/changeable process • KM is facilitated by technology, but it is primarily about people, working together and about communication • We need to connect, to put in context, to globalize our information and our knowledge, thus to look for a complex knowledge. • Knowledge management originates from a strategy that is informative, instructional, and cognitive. Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  17. 17. Culture • Form of individual or collective representation • Culture isn’t a thing but a process • Cultural change is a change in representations • By applying the concepts and principles of complexity thinking we can gain a new understanding of business culture Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  18. 18. Networks • Common objectives – shared meaning • Actors and actants • Innovation closely tied to organisation • Possibilities tied to societal environment Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  19. 19. Markets – what do we really see? • Ordered domain: Known causes and effects. • Ordered domain: Knowable causes and effects. • Un-ordered domain: Complex relationships. • Un-ordered domain: Chaos Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value

  21. 21. What can I learn from chaos? Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  22. 22. Chaos A chaordic system is a complex and dynamical arrangement of connections between elements forming a unified whole. • Determinism; • Nonlinearity; • Sensitive Dependence on Initial Conditions; and • Periodicity Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  23. 23. Power Laws • In physics, a power law relationship between two scalar quantities x and y is any such that the relationship can be written as – <math>y = ax^k,!<math> • where a (the constant of proportionality) and k (the exponent of the power law) are constants. • in its simplest terms roughly eighty percent of the work is done by twenty percent of the network Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value
  24. 24. It’s a small world • In reality, the market is nothing but a directed network • No manager or firm can succeed or fail alone, customers, managers and teams are inherently linked together in social networks. • The notion of interdependence : managers constitute hubs and nodes of the network, organization learning will filter down and out through the network as a whole. • six degrees of separation : everyone in the world can be reached through a short chain of acquaintances. • Change is marked by "phase transitions" from states of disorder to order: "cascading failure“ and “emergent” threats .

  29. 29. Principles of Social Network Analysis • Actors and their actions are viewed as interdependent rather than independent, autonomous units • Relational ties (linkages) between actors are channels for transfer or “flow” of resources (either material or nonmaterial) • Network models focusing on individuals view the network structure environment as providing opportunities for or constraints on individual action • Network models conceptualize structure (social, economic, political, and so forth) as lasting patterns of relations among actors (Wasserman/Faust 2008:4) Dr. Denis Gruber Introduction Networks ApplicationChallenges Value

  32. 32. Six core layers of knowledge 1. The Work Network With whom do you exchange information as part of your daily work routines? 2. The Social Network With whom do you “check in,” inside and outside the office, to find out what is going on? 3. The Innovation Network With whom do you collaborate or kick around new ideas? 4. The Expert Knowledge Network To whom do you turn for expertise or advice? 5. The Career Guidance or Strategic Network. Whom do you go to for advice about the future? 6. The Learning Network.
