Application: Corporate Excellence


Network graph of interaction frequency within a large corporation of many departmentsCorporations face a stream of shocks both exogenously from their external environment (funding, tasking) and endogenously from interactions between their subsystems and groups. Confronted with these perturbations, decisions are made at scales from the individual, to sub-groups, to corporation. These decisions influence global corporate health (generically defined by the ability of the corporation to excel within its environment). When implementing policy or rules, funding internal projects, bringing in new externally funded projects, hiring new people, or creating initiatives, it is difficult to know how these decisions influence the corporation’s health either in the short or long term.
