The influence of self-organizing teams on the structure of the social graph
In this paper, we study evolution of a social graph structure under the leverage of various projects performed by self-organizing teams.
Suppose we have a group of specialists with different skills. Some of the team members are acquainted with each other, which is expressed by a social graph. We assume that each project requires a variety of skills, therefore the group members form teams in order to have at least one specialist with each skill required for the project. As a result of work on the project, all team members get acquainted with each other, which changes the social graph. In this paper a model is proposed for this process. Properties and characteristics of the model are studied analytically and via computer simulation.
