Hi - I'm looking for some suggestions for an approach and possibly a tool that would help collect network data from a really large number of people. Specifically, we are thinking about collecting network data from within one organization that has about 650 employees. What has worked for people in terms of 1) reducing respondent burden and 2) an approach to collect the data (tools/surveys used)? We don't want to use a name generator, we prefer a bounded list. We are considering options for dividing up the list by teams, divisions, etc., but also want to consider options for collecting data from this group as one whole network.
I'm less concerned about what to ask them, more how to ask this many people a couple of relational/network questions in a survey.
Thanks for any suggestions!
