8:35 AM Shifting from Human Capital to Social Capital

To edge out the competition in today’s disruptive environment, you need to ensure that your company is agile―that it can respond to change instantly and effectively. Based on hundreds of interviews and multitudes of organizational network studies, this session will focus on how to position your company for today―and for the future―by enabling creativity, innovation, and novel ideas to flow freely among teams, across departments, and throughout the company. This presentation will showcase how the use of network analysis can enable organizations to better understand how social capital helps to initiate, develop and amplify ideas. Focus will be placed on how to facilitate the interplay between three very specific network roles—brokers, connectors, energizers and connectors--to enable agility.
