***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** filippo, i don't know if it would broadly be characterized as being about social networks and performance, but you might also look at a bunch of stuff by Joel Podolny and Toby Stuart on organizations, networks, status, technology, & performance. they've (together & separately) written quite a bit about such, too many things for me to cite quickly! i also think of Ron Burt's work from the 80s as being about networks & performance, though i imagine you may already be familiar with it. good luck! - chris On Fri, 28 Sep 2007, [log in to unmask] wrote: > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > > Dear SocNetters, > > please find below a list of the answers I got to my question about > "social networks and firms performance" > > thanks again > Best > FB > > > - website of www.zenc.nl You can find a prensentation on network size ; a mixed blessing and more information about organization performance and networking.
