***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** I'm on a research project that is attempting to look at (among other things) how connection to social networks relates to workplace roles. How do the networks of a marketer or evangelist, for example, relate to the networks of a member of a small work team? I'm sure things have been done to measure this before. We have our quantitative tools in place; however, we'd like to verify that against the network members' beliefs. Is there a standard questionaire on such things? Our current draft (still very early) is attached below. We'd rather not retread covered ground, though; any advice on which studies have analyzed this before? Thanks, Danyel --- [ Note that the phrasing below is rather rough; we're looking right now to get a general outline of how we *might* ask the questions...] How interactive is your own job and workplace? I'm an evangelist or promoter-everything I do involves contact with other people (90% - 100% of work is interaction) I work with others often, but support my work with individual projects. (70-90% is interactive) I meet routinely with others, working mostly together (50-70%) I meet occasionally with others, but work mostly alone (30%-50%) I work with a set of personal tools; I coordinate with others, but largely work alone. (10%-30% is interactive) I'm a hermit; I hardly ever contact anyone else (0-10% is interactive) How varied is the group of people you meet with? I professionally meet many different people, and work with widely varying teams I work largely with other teams and outside groups; however, I often come back to a central core of teammates I work largely within a smaller team of people; however, some of my work involves meeting with a vareity of outside members I stick consistently to the same small group. ---- _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/).
