A highly customised survey

Using a short survey, and powerful data analytics, Network Centrality maps the collective relationship resources between individuals and teams. This computational analysis is visualized in graph form and measures the strength of each person’s role within the network. 


Imagine that we have 18 R&D employees of a manufacturing organisation struggling to collaborate effectively and innovate. How might Network Centrality identify and break down the silos impeding creativity and innovation?


Employees would be asked to rate each colleague on the level of collaboration for product development.

What might we find?

Many organisations show silo effects between teams, and managers can often inadvertently act as information bottlenecks. Silos stop knowledge, skills and information transfer between different individuals and different teams, stifling innovation. In this illustration, the specialist engineer teams are operating in silos, and the project managers are inadvertently maintaining the silos by bottlenecking knowledge transfer.

Potential Solutions

Communication Platform

We would establish greater use of communication platforms and channels. This would allow and encourage the specialist engineers in each team to communicate more frequently and develop useful professional relationships.

Knowledge Sharing Meetings

We would monthly knowledge-sharing meetings for specialist engineers to discuss projects they were working on and issues they were facing, thereby allowing them to hear others’ perspectives and gain access to knowledge they were not previously aware of.

Promote Collaboration

We would encourage project managers to facilitate collaboration between specialist engineers to prevent inadvertent bottlenecking of innovation, knowledge and skills sharing between teams.
