Value Networks

In my previous post I touched upon Organization Network Analysis (ONA) and Social Network Analysis (SNA). Another aspect of this theory area is Value Networks and Value Networks Analysis (VNA). Some would claim that VNA gives a far more comprehensive picture of organizational dynamics and behavior than ONA and SNA.
In VN you describe the character and content of the relations as business processes. Seen from a Business Plan perspective this is better than just knowing that their relations exist. But the main problem is that the data needed for VNA can't be drawn from the sources normally used for VNA. A possible solution would be to bridge OCA/SNA with VNA through integration of workflow and project systems.
But there is no question about, that when a thorough OCA and SNA has been completed and firmly implemented, then building on this through VNA makes good sense.

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

Mia Blichfeldt

Sometimes you get lucky. I shot this natural portrait of Mia Blichfeldt - a very gifted and up-coming badminton player at a private party - just a month before she became the youngest Danish Champion in Badminton in the senior league - and she is only 16!

Of course you can find many photos of Mia "in action", but only very few where she is being just herself - outside the badminton arena.
