Abstract: This paper reviews the literature on relationships of communication as well as communication network structures with organizational productivity. An hypothesis that flows from the literature is that higher network density is associated with higher productivity. We investigated associations between communication network structures and productivity in four vehicle assembly plants. Network analysis of communication about industrial materials use revealed that valued network density had an R2 of .97 with IM cost per unit produced. The highest productivity plants had IM network members communicating weekly or more often. We performed a triad census in each plant that also identified triad members so that we could propose a network rewiring intervention for three plants to change their networks to be similar to the highest productivity plant. The rewiring strategy is accurate, tractable, and reproducible.

Abstract: Nonprofits often participate in multiple collaborative partnerships at the same time to achieve their goals. This creates the opportunity for ideas and information among different partnerships to flow throughout the network. By collecting comprehensive membership data from 62 health-oriented partnerships in North Carolina, this paper documents connections across partnerships via shared members. The focus of this study is to investigate the relationship of network position on a partnership's influence within the broader community network. The study will deepen our understanding on how nonprofit organizations could best use their collaboration with other organizations and partnerships to achieve their goals.

Abstract: Researchers interested in the effects of social network ties on behavior are increasingly turning to network autocorrelation models, which allow for the simultaneous computation of individual-level and network-level effects. In this paper we examine the extent to which the effects of network ties are contingent on the structure, in particular the density, of the network of which they are a part. There are reasons to believe that the size of the network effect will be independent of density, but there are also reasons to believe that there might be a systematic association between the two. We use computer simulations on randomly generated networks at various levels of density and with three different types of endogenous variables to examine whether an association exists between density and the size of the network effect. We find that the effect is either stable or slightly negative from low density levels up to a density of about .85. At densities above this point, the size of the network effect begins to sharply decline. We examine several alternative conditions to test for the robustness of this effect. There is some indication that the association between density and the network effect is curvilinear—strongly negative at both very low and very high levels of density and closer to zero at intermediate levels.

Abstract: A key area of study for public management and nonprofit scholars is networking effectiveness. Nonprofits have encountered increased pressures to improve organizational effectiveness in recent years, both from their funding entities as well as the public, yet no studies to date have considered the effects that managerial networking have on nonprofit organizational effectiveness. This paper tests for the first time Meier and O’Toole’s model of public management and networking in the context of the nonprofit sector. We focus on the effect of a common measure of networking, frequency of contact, on nonprofit effectiveness. We examine nonprofit directors’ networking with a variety of political and community institutions, and we also consider the nature of these networking relationships in order to answer the question of whether networking effects nonprofit organizational effectiveness.
This study draws on survey data from a random sample of 315 nonprofit human service organizations in sixteen U.S. states. Relying on self-reported measures of networking from nonprofit Executive Directors, we test an empirical model in which we look at the frequency and the conflictual or cooperative nature of various networking relationships on achieving the organization’s core mission, increasing the organization’s funding, making strategic decisions, raising awareness, meeting funders’ expectations, responding to clients, and influencing the policy agenda. Findings suggest that the frequency and nature of networking relationships influences networking effectiveness. The results are discussed within the nonprofit and public management networking literatures and offer insights for both theory and practice.
