Power, Social Influence, and Sense Making: Effects of Network Centrality and Proximity on Employee Perceptions.
Ibarra, Herminia; Andrews, Steven B.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v38 n2 p277-303 Jun 1993
Explores the hypothesis that network-interaction patterns affect employee perceptions through two conceptually and empirically distinguishable mechanisms: localized social influence based on network proximity and system power based on network centrality. Both advice-network centrality and friendship-network proximity evidenced significant effects, although they were stronger for centrality than for proximity. (64 references) (MLH)
