The social network analysis explores the following types of networks:

– Organizational – analyzes links, information flows, and communication channels between individual employees or units within the company, identifying which employees are key to the functioning of a process or structure (informal leaders) where the so-called “narrow throat” exists and what are the main carriers of innovation and knowledge for the company.

– Influential – identifies people with network influence, helping the company to find out who the potential employees are helping to deploy / distribute new products and services, and which could potentially sabotage the process;

– Value – explores the links between individual units and structures that are involved in building the value chain for a company.
