Evaluation of the Results of the Realignment Background Paper: Organizational Change and Collaboration Dynamics: A Social Network Analysis of the IDB

Mar 2014
This paper analyzes the effects of the Realignment process of the Inter-AmericanDevelopment Bank (IDB) on internal collaboration outcomes. Network analysis methods
are used to depict social networks and to measure the degree of collaboration between IDB
employees at different points in time. Drawing on a before-and-after comparison, we
conclude that the Realignment successfully dismantled the institution¿s regional
segmentation and location silos. However, collaboration within and between sectors does
not appear to have increased.
