Title: Some Assembly Required: Organizing in the 21st century
Date: September 21, 4-5 pm
Venue: LUISS Business School – Sala Colonne Viale Pola, 12 Roma
Guest speaker: Professor Noshir Contractor (http://nosh.northwestern.edu/).
Recent technological advances provide comprehensive digital traces of social actions, interactions, and transactions. These data provide an unprecedented exploratorium to model the socio-technical motivations for creating, maintaining, dissolving, and reconstituting into teams – for research, business, or social causes. Using examples from research in virtual organizations and massively multiplayer online games, Contractor will argue that Network Science serves as the foundation for the development of social network theories and methods to help advance our ability to understand the emergence of effective teams. More importantly, he will argue that these insights will also enable effective teams by building a new generation of recommender systems that leverage our research insights on the socio-technical motivations for creating ties.
