The Collaborative Edge: How Can Organizations Assess and Improve Collaboration?

Organizations know that collaboration is important. However, they often struggle to find ways to evaluate collaboration, provide concrete evidence of its positive impacts, and improve interactions.

In this webinar, Maya Townsend, MSOD, founder of Partnering Resources, LLC, presents two case studies describing how a quasi-governmental organization and a nonprofit publishing company used network analysis to assess and improve collaboration. She shares how other companies can use network mapping to measure collaboration.

People said about OrgMapper

“We had a very successful project with OrgMapper during the summer of 2017. The aim was to identify the influencers (using network science) within the organization who could drive the change.” 
“OrgMapper was used to select a group of highly engaged and well-connected individuals to embed the new behavioral values in the organization. “You can’t start a fire without a spark”, so the identified influencers (we called them Sparks) were positioned as ambassadors for ongoing cultural change.”
„We chose a bottom-up approach for development and roll-out of the growth strategy of the company. We could only try it once, it needed to work, and therefore we wanted to work with our internal experts. With OrgMapper we identified influential employees and involved them in future-shaping workshops, so they can act as multipliers, can help release the developed stories, and can play a key role in accelerating the change.“
