The study of communication networks and communication structure in large orgaizations by Peter R Monge( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a set of procedures for analyzing communication networks in large organizations. The procedures include the identification and evaluation of various kinds of networks, assessment of the organizational hierarchy, appraisal of various departments within the organization, and evaluation of individual communication behavior. The report begins by describing and illustrating the essential concepts of network analysis, thereby providing a vocabulary for talking about the process. In the second chapter several comparative techniques are described for evaluating the network, including overlaying the actual network on the organizational chart and comparing different networks. Several important network metrics, called communication structure variables, are identified, and their relationships to important aspects of organizational processes are suggested in the third chapter. Finally, information is provided to enable a reader to gain access to and utilize existing software for conducting a large-scale network analysis by computer. (Author/RB)
Social Network Analysis: An Overview of Recent Developments by William Richards( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A method for modeling the structure of large social systems has been developed which is based on the interpersonal communication networks present in the functioning system. Recent developments in techniques and computer software have made possible the analysis of networks of several thousand persons. The new technique provides a method for describing social systems which is based on emergent systems properties, rather than arbitrary, prior expectations. A general overview of the recent advances which have brought about these new techniques of analysis is presented. (Author/WH)
A Future of Communication Theory: Systems Theory by Georg N Lindsey( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Concepts of general systems theory, cybernetics and the like may provide the methodology for communication theory to move from a level of technology to a level of pure science. It was the purpose of this paper to (1) demonstrate the necessity of applying systems theory to the construction of communication theory, (2) review relevant systems concepts and principles, and (3) specify the applicability of systems theory to communication theory development and specific methodological proposals. In part 1 the continuous nature of communicative phenomena is examined with particular attention being given to the notion of the mathematical function. Part 2 begins at a very basic systems level, I.E. the notion of wholes as compared with aggregates and relations. It continues with a discussion of open systems principles such as: equifinality, dynamic homeostatasis or the steady state, entrophy and ectrophy and Prigogine's equation. The concluding section considers the cybernetic notion of deviation amplifying mutual causation and the role of simulation in the construction of communication theory. (Author/LG)
