Network Member Attributes: Brief
When conducting a social network analysis or using PARTNER CPRM, you have the opportunity to collect more useful descriptive data about your partners with network member attributes. These are characteristics or demographics of the organizations that make up your network or ecosystem – like their sector or focus area, service area, role in the network, or target population they serve. Network member attributes allow you to categorize, compare, and analyze how network members with different attributes interact and interconnect.
Our Network Science Brief below introduces this concept in greater detail, explains how we use this attribute data, and shares tips and advice for thinking through your own network member attributes. As always, please reach out and contact our team if you have questions or want to learn more on this topic. We’d be happy to connect and help!
