I am a doctoral student and am interested in examining the network-wide effects when managers intentionally disrupt an existing network. For example, how might the collective culture among remaining members in the network be affected when a management decision is made to eliminate central members of an underperforming workgroup?
I am familiar with Krackhardt and Porter (1985) that looked at effects on individuals when close associates leave, but I am looking for guidance on studies that have examined network-wide effects. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
