Ever since 2008, when I first met Northwestern University's Professor Noshir Contractor, I have been on a mission to make applied social network analysis a mainstream management tool. Large organizations are complex, and social network analysis offers us an excellent way to untangle the web of complexity that makes change difficult, stifles innovation, and wastes time and money. We launched Syndio Social with the goal of building agile businesses by arming managers with the information they need to make excellent decisions on how to quickly connect the right people in their organization at the right time. We offer services that help managers drive tool adoption, increase collaboration, and navigate organizational change. Through direct relationships with our clients, as well as through strategic partnerships with service providers, I work with the Syndio Social team to provide our customers with the most practically applicable and advanced network analysis solutions on the market.
