A Manual for Network Analysis (Using the NEGOPY Network Analysis Program).
Richards, William D., Jr.
Network Analysis is an observational system focusing on the relationships of individuals within a system--their subgroups, their leaders, and the frequency of their communications. The strength of relationships can be measured by examining the incidence and duration of intercommunications. Using data accumulated by questioning each member of the organization, the computer employs a prescribed set of algorithms, the Network Analysis Program (NEGOPY), to yield a topological interpretation of individuals, subgroups, and inte communications.
