b Applied Network Analysis b is a reference book on the methodology of network analysis the study of the structure of relations between people groups or formal organizations Illustrations from real research show the problems that arise in network analysis and how to resolve or avoid them Primarily written by Burt and Minor the book has the cohesion of a text while still using work from other leading network analysts, Almost everything that happens in a firm flows through informal networks builts by advice coordination cooperation friendship gossip knowledge and trust In this book Ron Burt builds upon his celebrated work on network analyses to explain how these informal networks functions and the role of network entrepreneurs who have amassed social capital Burt shows that social capital is a critical element in business strategy Who has it how it works and how to develop it have become key questions as markets organizations and careers become more and more dependent on informal discretionary relationships Informal relations have always mattered What is new is the range of activities in which they now matter and the emerging clarity we have about how they create advantage for certain people at the expense of others This advantage is created by brokerage and closure Brokerage is the activity of people who live at the intersecting of social worlds who can see and develope good ideas Closure is the tightening of coordination on a closed network of people Brokerage and Closure explores how these elements work together to define social capital showing how in the business world reputation has come to replace authority and reward has come to be associated with achieving competitive advantage in a social order of continuous disequilibrium, No description available, Leading scholars in the field of social networks from diverse disciplines present the first systematic and comprehensive collection of current theories and empirical research on the informal connections that individuals have for support help and information from other people Expanding on concepts originally formulated by Pierre Bourdieu and James Coleman this seminal work will find an essential place with educators and students in the fields of social networks rational choice theory institutions and the socioeconomics of poverty labor markets social psychology and race br br The volume is divided into three parts The first segment clarifies social capital as a concept and explores its theoretical and operational bases Additional segments provide brief accounts that place the development of social capital in the context of the family of capital theorists and identify some critical but controversial perspectives and statements regarding social capital in the literature The editors then make the argument for the network perspective why and how such a perspective can clarify controversies and advance our understanding of a whole range of instrumental and expressive outcomes br br em Social Capital em further provides a forum for ongoing research programs initiated by social scientists working at the crossroads of formal theory and new methods These scholars and programs share certain understandings and approaches in their analyses of social capital They argue that social networks are the foundation of social capital Social networks simultaneously capture individuals and social structure thus serving as a vital conceptual link between actions and structural constraints between micro and macro level analyses and between relational and collective dynamic processes They are further cognizant of the dual significance of the structural features of the social networks and the resources embedded in the networks as defining elements of social capital
