Role of Communication Networks in Behavioral Systems Analysis
Houmanfar, Ramona; Rodrigues, Nischal Joseph; Smith, Gregory S.
Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, v29 n3-4 p257-275 2009
This article provides an overview of communication networks and the role of verbal behavior in behavioral systems analysis. Our discussion highlights styles of leadership in the design and implementation of effective organizational contingencies that affect ways by which coordinated work practices are managed. We draw upon literature pertaining to complex systems and rule governance to understand how communication networks and verbal rules contribute to the issues involved in reengineering behavioral systems in the face of continued socioeconomic and cultural demands. An analysis of leadership in relation to communication networks in organizations is discussed.
