One is network analytics and visualization, and here is the essential brief.

Most companies are aware that adoption of change takes place at the grassroot level of an organization. Local Change Agents can assist with local implementation of change. So, if you have the right tool to identify these Change Agents, your project will benefit from this critical element of successful change.

Almost every company has an org chart showing the structure of the organization and the relative levels and responsibilities of its parts and positions (“What you already know”).

4 features to look for in ONA software

Organizational network analysis (ONA) tools come in different shapes and sizes. Ask your vendor about these features. They will help you make a better choice when purchasing ONA software for your business.

Do-it-yourself version?

Whether you are a consultant, business manager, or analyst, you probably want to perform data collection and network analysis using a tool with a friendly user interface which lets you enjoy a standardized step-by-step approach through the tool. Ideally, it also provides simple instructions and a comprehensive library with support and training documentation. More advanced ONA tools are cloud-based, with the software as a service which can be easily accessed anytime from any computer or device without required downloads or installations. They tend to have high adoption rates with lower learning curves and initial costs, painless upgrades, and secure data storage capacity.

Our international company opened up the New Year agile. We proudly presented the first World Café by Maven7 OrgMapper involving HR and company leaders in Hungary at the beginning of January. Our main goal was to contribute to effective organizational change management.

We are living in the age of constant and speedy change: rapid development concerning technologies is there for the economic actors. These days, a quick reflection process is essential for companies which want to develop rather than just survive. In practice, it is more complicated for bigger ones than smaller ones. András Vicsek, co-founder and CEO of the international network research company Maven7 OrgMapper, said that the aim of the World Café is to give a chance for the stakeholders to share best practices in order to speed up organizational change management processes.
