Network analysis has become increasingly popular in management research. It allows scholars to explore the formation and evolution of social ties at many levels of analysis, from advice-giving networks among coworkers to the formation of alliances or affiliations between organizations. Among many other applications, network analysis enables us to study social status, the dynamics of competitive rivalry, or the diffusion of innovations and new strategies between firms. This CARMA webcast provides an introduction to the types of research questions that can be pursued through the analysis of network tie formation and evolution. It will cover the basic approach to data structure and design, along with examples and information on developing studies using exponential random graph models and stochastic actor-oriented models.
