Analyzing, Crafting, and Managing Agile Organization Networks

While managing human capital is a critical competency for the HR function, it is no longer effective to simply manage individual assets. HR professionals in this dynamic landscape must manage webs of connected human capital to find, utilize, and coordinate employees’ knowledge, skills, and expertise. In this module, we will focus on an array of topics related to how the HR function can best leverage social network analysis tools to achieve organizational outcomes. Topics will include (1) identifying critical relationships that should exist to ease workflow and support strategic objectives, (2) pinpointing central players and key opinion leaders to alleviate collaborative overload and effectively distribute resources, (3) coordinating employee expertise and bridging silos, and (4) building agile and resilient organizational networks to predict, prevent, and persist against turnover.
