Effect of Social Graph Structure on the Utilization Rate in a Flat Organization

P. 213-223.

The goal of our research is to investigate how the communication structure of an organization affects its performance. In the paper, we study a simulation model of a self-organizing team conducting scientific research. The key parameter of the model is the social graph of the organization, which defines the team creation process. For this model, we formally define the average utilization rate of the group. Under some natural condition, the utilization rate is a function of the social graph. Lower and upper bounds of this characteristic are established. The obtained result has evident practical meaning and policy implications for organization management.
