Software for Social Network Analysis & Organizational Network Analysis

InFlow 3.1 performs network analysis AND network visualization in one integrated product -- no passing files back and forth between different programs like other tools. What is mapped in one window is measured in the other window -- what you see, is what you measure. InFlow excels at what-if analysis -- change the network, get new metrics -- just 2 clicks of the mouse. InFlow is designed to work with Microsoft Office and the WWW. You do not need to be an expert in statistics to use InFlow.

InFlow is the only popular SNA/ONA software that has available training and personal mentoring through your first project(s). Experienced consultants teach you both the methodology and practice of SNA/ONA, along with how to use the software. Be ready to go quickly!

Gerry Falkowski, a former IBM consultant, has been using InFlow since 1993. He is elated with the ability to easily analyze an organization and quickly move network maps and metrics into his presentations and reports.

"InFlow is very user friendly allowing us to quickly show clients aspects of their organization
that are usually invisible. We can map and measure teamwork, communication, information flow,
and knowledge sharing/re-use. We show the client both gaps and effective connections -- it is easy
to see where we need to focus our attention. The ability to do what-if scenarios of organizational change is priceless. I can't see managing today's organizations without this knowledge!"

The Corporate Leadership Council describes Organizational Network Mapping as "The most accurate, systematic means yet seen to identify key value creators and informal knowledge communities that drive corporate core competencies."

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is an interactive model of your organization, community, or industry worth?
