September is time for class

What better time than September 1st to add an "Upcoming Events" section to the right-hand column of my blog. Topping the (admittedly short) list is my September 16th presentation with Rob Greenly at the Trainers' Roundtable, entitled "Social Network Analysis: Applications for HR and Training."

I'm really looking forward to this event with Rob, whose experience as VP of Learning and Organization Development at Boston Scientific will keep our presentation firmly grounded in business fundamentals.

Here's our promotional blurb:

Social Network Analysis:
Applications for HR and Training

Participants will learn about Social Network Analysis (SNA), a tool for producing an actual "picture" of informal relationships in an organization, including communication flow, personal support and advice networks. The presentation will show how SNA can help human resource and training professionals to
  • Identify and leverage critical roles and talent hidden in an organization
  • Take a lead in improving productivity of core business units.
The presentation will include a brief introduction, a practical case study, experiential learning, small group discussion of applications on-the-job, and an overview of how to identify and leverage informal organizational networks.

RSVPs are required by September 13, 2005. See the Trainers' Roundtable for more information, and email to register.

Bruce, do you know which Fortune 500 HR dept was one of the fist to use SNA on a regular basis? Bonus points for what year? and what discipline within HR started this trend?
