I am looking for references on network robustness and resilience applied to
organisational networks, including research that focuses on designing
organisational networks that are robust and resilient as oppose to designing
organisational networks for efficiency (such as in the Economic literature).
I am interested in both robustness and resilience of network structures as
well as the information/knowledge that flows through the network. I have
already looked at the following references:

*       Visser, B. (2004). Trade-Offs in Organizational Design.
*       Erhardt, G., Marsili, M. (2004). Emergence and resilience of social
networks: a general theoretical framework.

Mobility and Propinquity. Social Networks, 2, 423-435.

Can anyone point me to any other references that cover this aspect of social

Many thanks in advance.
