SOCIAL NETWORKS AND PERFORMANCE: A SIMULATION EXPERIMENT
This study examines how early relationships in company networks may predict performance. Establishing early centrality predicts later performance, as measured by net profit in a simulation game run with 602 participants formed into 135 teams functioning as companies over six years. The paper also defines a way of classifying centrality trajectories in social networks, providing a method that can be used more generally to predict network change.
