How to analyze dynamic network patterns of high performing teams


AbstractThe dynamic communication network within teams affects the performance of teams. But how can we analyze these emerging networks? We identified three research areas that have to be included for this purpose. First we summarize empirical studies concerning team networks and performance to point out the need of longitudinal investigations. Second we present the multi-level multi-theoretical model by Monge and Contractor (2003) which provides a theoretical framework to explain the evolution of communication networks within teams. Third a stochastic model is introduced that allows analyzing event based data, like e-mail streams, using exponential random graph models. We propose to include these three research areas that enable researchers and practitioners to analyze dynamic network patterns of virtual teams
