Evaluation of the Results of the Realignment Background Paper: Organizational Change and Collaboration Dynamics: A Social Network Analysis of the IDB
Morales, Carlos; Schijman, Agustina
This paper analyzes the effects of the Realignment process of the Inter-American Development 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.
