Strategic Network Management in a Community Collaborative: A Simulation

by Danielle Varda
University of Colorado- Denver

Summary

In this simulation, the network theory and Social Network Analysis (SNA) are applied to examine the organizational networks in public health partnerships. SNA and network theory is applied to operationalize a set of measurable dimensions that can be used to evaluate the strength of PHCs and the connections (or connectivity) among partner organizations.  Connectivity is defined as the measured interactions between partners in a collaborative such as the amount and quality of interactions, and how these relationships might change over time.  The simulation has a brief overview of SNA to allow students to become familiar with the concept and language. However, the readings from the “recommended reading” list, which is located in the Teaching Notes, can help students get familiar and prepare to participate in this simulation.
