Lantern™ ONA network mapping

A powerful toolkit for identifying hidden organizational strengths and weaknesses and dramatically improving business performance.
Lantern™ ONA(Organizational Network Analysis) makes it possible for previously hidden patterns of behavior and relationships to be uncovered and understood. Flows of information, influence, trust, and expertise are brought to light in vivid detail.

This powerful software stands apart from other network analysis tools in how it is able to make complex social dynamics simple and understandable, framing problems and opportunities in real business terms. Its automated reporting infrastructure is optimized for specific organizational challenges, allowing for a pinpoint focus on relevant patterns and actionable insights - with Lantern™ ONA, there is no analysis for analysis sake.

Key benefits include:

  • Looking “beneath the surface”. Network Analysis provides leaders with a view of the informal and often hidden dynamics within the organization- where influence lies, unofficial information channels, and how attitudes form.

  • Unlocking hidden potential in your people. There exists a tremendous amount of knowledge, expertise and new ideas lying dormant within every organization. Network analysis offers powerful methods to get access to this latent potential and harness the full energy of your people and teams.

  • Creating adaptability. Conventional methods of designing and managing organizations are only effective in highly stable, predictable environments. Given the level of uncertainty and change that most companies face, it becomes necessary to create more flexible structures that center around relationships, interactions, and real day-to-day processes.

  • Managing change. Most change management efforts can be characterized by big ideas that sound great on paper but fall short when it comes to execution. A key factor for successful change is knowing those individuals or groups that are most influential and how information and attitudes are shared throughout the organization. ONA is a perfect way to accomplish this.

Three steps to mapping an organizational network:

STEP 1: Data Collection

Network information is captured in various ways including web survey, email mapping, or RFID

STEP 2: Network Analytics

Advanced analysis techniques are used to identify hidden patterns within a network

STEP 3: Insight Reporting

Automatically generate reports that provide immediate and actionable insights for your business. View and explore your networks using both simple tables as well as visually rich interactive network graphs.
