How Do You Know if Your Organization Has a Good Network?
Networks are how work gets done. A good network is the means to accomplish goals and improve your organization or business. A bad network is a serious hurdle in the pathway of your progress.
So how do you know if your organization has a good network or a bad one? That’s where network analysis comes in. Humax uses the tools of organizational network analysis to map energy, information flow, trust, and reciprocity.
Putting the Puzzle Together
Your organization is a puzzle – and each person is a piece of that puzzle. Network science enables you to put together all the pieces and see – for the first time – the solution to the puzzle. The result is a coherent, understandable picture of how your organization really works.
Measure the Buzz
People talk about “buzz,” the energy – or lack thereof – associated with certain people or projects. Our organizational network analysis produces maps of energizing and de-energizing connections in your organization, identifying the bright stars who energize others and the black holes that suck energy out of the system.
With these energy maps, you can locate and replicate the positive practices that create energy. In addition, you can identify and fix the negative practices that drain energy.

Recharge Your Network
Based on your review, the numbers might tell you that you are on track and to continue doing what you’re doing. However, if the numbers indicate that your network needs work, we can suggest actions to recharge your network’s buzz.
The Reciprocity Ring
is one way to help reconnect your network and increase its energy. The Ring embodies the principle of pay it forward. People who experience the Ring find that it increases their positive energy toward others, which in turn yields improvements in the network’s efficiency and productivity. An organizational network analysis can be conducted at a later date – six months or so, for example – to measure the improvements made over time.
We live in a connected world, now more than ever before. The best performers in the future will be those who invest in and capitalize on the network of connections and resources, building powerful professional communities.
