Modeling Performance through Social Networks
We are interested in developing a social network based model and operational constructs for exploring individual performance in knowledge-intensive work.
Network effects on individual's ability to perform better have been documented in studies on communications, sociology and social psychology. Previous studies further demonstrate that actors with a dense social network perform better. Furthermore, actors who are rich in structural holes (connections to social clusters or groups who are themselves not well connected) are better situated in their social network to obtain, control and broker information. The importance of task-oriented and sociological effects of information and communication technology use continue to play important role in studies on individual performance. Research on direct interplay between social network structure, ICT use and individual performance is, however, lacking to date. We are interested in developing a social network based model and operational constructs for exploring individual performance in knowledge-intensive work. Our specific projects in this are are as follows:
- Effects of Social Networks and ICT Use on the Performance of General Practitioners
- Exploring Trader’s Performance in Financial Market
- Measuring Software Testing Team Performance through Social Networks
