Enterprise networks drive productivity gains: New Research

A recent research report by University of Queensland Business School (Australia) academics Tim Kastelle and John Steen suggests that large enterprises can make major gains in productivity by investing in their internal communication networks. This resonates strongly with the concepts of bioteaming according to practitioner Max Bhanabhai.

The Bioteaming Manifesto

According to the new research "understanding and proactively managing information flow through communication networks is the quickest way to undertake organisational change, make improvements and increase productivity"

The report stresses the importance of mapping communication networks as a key technique (also known as Social Network Analysis (SNA)).

The authors go on to suggest that "there are engineering firms who suspect major, billion dollar projects are being compromised because people on different floors are not talking to each other about the project, let alone engaging with groups located interstate or overseas."
