Introducing Automated Organizational Network Analysis from

We’ve been hard at work helping our users derive insights, act on recommendations, and optimize the data-driven decision-making process. Leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning, Peoplelogic has helped companies get a better understanding of their people, processes, and how work gets done within their organization. A critical component of that understanding is understanding how knowledge is transferred, how projects are collaborated on, and how your teams interact with your customers. 

What is Organization Network Analysis (ONA)? 

Organizational network analysis, or ONA, is a method for studying the socio-technical networks that exist within an organization. This methodology creates graphical and statistical models of knowledge, tasks, resources, groups, and people that comprise an organization system. 

For more information on ONA, check out: “What is Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) and How Can it Benefit My Business? 

I’m on the Peoplelogic Starter Plan, do I get access to ONA? 

Yes! For a limited time only, we’re offering our Startup users full access to the advanced analytics and insights our Growth users enjoy, which includes the ONA. Your feedback has been and remains critical in developing the best, and easiest to use, People Intelligence platform—so while we’ve just released this new feature, we thought it would be beneficial to get as much feedback as possible. 

How do I access my ONA? 

As many of our users have learned , Lexi the NLP-based AI persona that lives within your Peoplelogic instance is your entry point into the ONA. Simply ask Lexi, “show me how my team is connected,” and our machine learning will do the rest.

How do I make sense of the visualization? 

With data, context is king. We are continually adding new contextual layers to make exploring your ONA data easier to understand, more actionable, and more insightful. In our first release there are a few things to note: 

  • Clicking on a user’s node (circle) will show you the connections that person maintains inside and outside of your organization—with the bar chart in the upper left denoting the strength and frequency of said connection 
  • During the initial creation and production of the ONA chart, the proximity of each node represents the closest knowledge transfer relationships that exist in your organization 
  • Currently, we are bucketing most “other external” users into one node—however, soon we will make the exploration of external connections easier, as well as leverage those data points into our AI/ML models 
  • External users that have a very high connectivity with members of your organization will already be placed into their own node 
  • The “greyed out” lines that exists in the background are showing you how other members of your team are connected. Simply click on another user’s node to see the connections that exist from that person to other colleagues, teams, and customers
