Back in December I gave my readers a Christmas present: this free spreadsheet utility for organizational network analysis. Quite a few people asked for an online version of this; so today for my birthday I am celebrating by giving away a new present: this free online network survey utility. If SurveyMonkey had existed in 1993, this is just the survey Krackhardt and Hansen would have used in researching their HBR article "Informal Networks."
To get the most from this online network survey, just follow the self-contained instructions to create your own personal copy. Then you can modify your copy of the survey as you wish and use it as you would any other SurveyMonkey survey.
I am providing the survey free of charge. SurveyMonkey is free or $20/month, depending on which features you want. Choose your favorite network mapping software (see the Connectedness right sidebar under "SNA Software") and you are ready to go.
If you are in a mood to shop around, I recommend you also see the special-purpose survey tools of Miguel Lobo at Duke's Fuqua School of Business and Rob Cross at UVA's Network Roundtable.
New to network mapping? Don't hesitate to email me with questions on how to get started.
