Facts and Figuring: An Experimental Investigation of Network Structure and Performance in Information and Solution Spaces
Organization Science, Volume abs/1406.7586, Issue 5, 2015.
Using data from a novel laboratory experiment on complex problem solving in which we varied the structure of 16-person networks, we investigate how an organization's network structure shapes the performance of problem-solving tasks. Problem solving, we argue, involves both exploration for information and exploration for solutions. Our res...More
