Hi --

Rob's book was a premium at the Social Networks Summit in SF. It was very popular.

Rob also gave a talk.

One good point in the book is that SNA is descriptive, not prescriptive. Considerable mgmt skills/advice are rqr'd to achieve gains with SN techniques.

Cheers,

John

There was a very good presentation on Social Networks in developing “Communities of Practice” at an APQC KM conference in May 2004. This breakout group was very engaged and afterwards I followed up with some of the attendees that had used this methodology in their companies. I would agree with John "SNA is descriptive, not prescriptive. Considerable mgmt skills/advice are rqr'd to achieve gains with SN techniques"

In June I was lucky to meet Andrew Parker and I believe he would support the notion that the hard work is following the analysis. Gaining full understanding of the "nodes" of focus and how to proceed to achieve the desired business results is critical to success.
