The WE&B Social Network Analysis (SNA) and Insights
The WE&B SNA is a practical, measurable approach to better understand and visualise the collaboration levels, the relationships and/or flow of information within your organization, project or network.
A Packaged Service with benefits
Our insights will thus enable your organization to achieve objectives from attaining growth, generating new acquisition, retaining customers, improving internal or external business relations to improving project organizational processes.
Furthermore, using Social Network Analysis (SNA), WE&B can overlay a stakeholder network map together with fuzzy cognitive mapping (a graphical representation of the knowledge about, or the perception of, a given system). This ability provides a deeper analysis of different systems. For example, we can analyse the interplay, risks and interaction between human and environmental systems.
SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS
What do we do?
The WE&B team – with years of Social Network Analysis across various sectors and disciplines – will shine a light on the levels of collaboration between groups, identify the key stakeholders, clarify their roles, determine how and when they should be engaged and provide recommendations to transform them into efficient management systems.
