My partner and I worked with the Design Development team at Google to understand the project organization for their new Sunnyvale expansion. We conducted a social network analysis to study relationships at the individual within Google and at company level with partnering organizations.
We analyzed communication, hierarchy, advice and reliance networks to identify areas of miscommunication and misperceptions. Our insights from the analysis helped to improve workflow for the next design phase.
