We are working on number of projects which deals with modeling dynamic coordination through social networks. Traditionally, within studies of multi organisational coordination, there has been a discounting or neglect of social networks as a source of exploring the inherent relationships among actors, their activities, shared goals and interdependencies. Coordinating operations requiring more ‘collaborative problem solving’ involving officials and local communities are underscored in recent studies. Our aim is to develop social networks based theoretical perspectives for the study of coordination structures in a dynamic environment. We apply theories and methods from network centrality to model the dynamic coordination structure and process. Our specific projects in this are are as follows:

  1. Dynamic Network Modeling of Emergency Response Coordination
  2. Towards a Distributed Behavioral Model for Measuring Emergency Response Readiness
  3. Developing Coordination Models for Measuring SW Testing Team Performance
  4. Developing Coordination Models for Measuring SW Testing Team Performance
  5. Modeling Comunication and Coordination Process for Emergency Department of Hospitals
  6. Effective Project Based Coordination through Actor Centrality
  7. Effect of Social Ties on Interorganisational Coordination
