- Jan 7, 2008Hi Everyone,
I've just joined the ONA-prac group and am thrilled to be here!
I am a consultant in business/IT strategy and implementation
(examples: enterprise content management, knowldge management,
interactive marketing, custom software engineering). I'm also an MBA
student at the University of Chicago GSB.
My interest in ONA/SNA comes from three places:
1. I first learned about networks when I started a small business
without having a network. That's difficult - I don't recommend
it. :^) But I gained quite a bit of practical experience in
developing professional networks as a result.
2. I've done some SNA with UCINet and NetDraw for class projects and
want to learn more.
3. In my software engineering and project management roles, I have
found that the challenges to successful projects are rarely
technical - they involve culture, organization, communication, and
group dynamics most of the time.
So I've dedicated myself to learning how to improve organizational
effectiveness, and I want to learn more about using ONA.
Specifically, I'm looking for methods and tools for diagnostics and
for approaches to developing solutions to organizational challenges.
I look forward to learning as well as contributing as much as I can.
