'To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.' Winston Churchill
With Keynetiq you can:
- Map your organization’s informal influence network
- Find hidden influencers, role models and key opinion leaders
- Identify top change agents to drive the change process
- Find barriers and bottlenecks in information flow
- Build and strengthen critical connections
- Create and develop communities of change leaders
With as much as 75% of organizational change efforts either failing entirely or failing to meet the expectations of stakeholders, the most common reason cited by executives is employee resistance. Use Keynetiq to harness the power of an informal influence network and overcome the resistance to change.
Find your change agents
Rather than driving change from the top, most effective companies develop and engage strong change agents who can influence others to adopt new behaviors, tools and strategies. The challenge however is finding them, as these informal opinion leaders are rarely visible on the formal organizational chart. Keynetiq will identify your employees that others naturally turn to for advice, guidance and meaning, so you can engage them in the planning and execution of change processes.
Keynetiq helps organizations map the informal networks of influence and information flow, allowing their redesign and realignment. Use our dynamic network map to find barriers and bottlenecks, bridge communication gaps and strengthen connections critical for the diffusion of new ideas and behaviors. Connect and cultivate a community of change leaders to drive all your change initiatives.
'The team with the best players wins.' Jack Welch
With Keynetiq you can:

- Add network perspective to your talent programs
- Identify hidden social talent
- Make better talent mobility decisions
- Develop leadership networks
- Improve your leaders’ connectedness
Develop talent through networks
Organizational Network Analysis will add a new dimension to your talent and leadership programs. Keynetiq’s dynamic network map will show you exactly where your top talent is located and how it is embedded in your management team. Use this knowledge to make better decisions on career management, talent pool selection, designing development programs and planning leadership succession.
Find your hidden talent
While most companies know who their top performers are, very few can name their top collaborators, influencers, opinion leaders, connectors or informal experts. Employees with exceptional social skills are often overlooked by traditional talent tools. Identifying them for their top network roles and understanding their key strengths will allow you to tap into the hidden talent pools.
Build leadership networks
Successful leadership programs can’t leave the relationship building to chance. Having strategic connections with other key employees gives direct access to complementary resources and knowledge. Use Keynetiq to connect your rising stars to key stakeholders and natural mentors. Improve your leaders’ effectiveness through their social and professional networks’ analysis and development.
'Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.' Michael Jordan

- Map your teams and project groups across the organization
- Make better decisions on the composition and structure of your teams

Build better teams
Building high-performing teams is a skill that every organization has to master in order to be competitive and achieve its strategic goals. Keynetiq will show which of your teams have the right diversity of skills and experience necessary to achieve their business goals. Use this knowledge to make better decisions on team composition and structure. Realign your teams for maximum performance.
Communication is the key
Bringing the right people to the table is hardly enough- if they don’t communicate, exchange ideas or share information, the team will fail to deliver. While most companies invest vast resources into enhancing communication between people and teams, very few actually measure it and apply a systematic data-driven approach to improve it. Keynetiq will reveal how your people really communicate and where the gaps and bottlenecks are so you can optimize the communication flow and knowledge exchange.
Understand your team dynamics
What if you could measure your teams' cohesion and fine-tune it to improve performance? With Keynetiq you can map, visualize and quantify collaboration and social ties within your teams and across the organization. Such perspective allows optimization of your teams’ inner and outer connectivity, setting benchmarks and replicating patterns of the best performing teams.
'The only irreplaceable capital an organization possesses is the knowledge and ability of its people. The productivity of that capital depends on how effectively people share their competence with those who can use it.' Andrew Carnegie
With Keynetiq you can:
- Map the knowledge sharing network in your organization
- Find individuals and groups with restricted access to knowledge
- Improve the flow of knowledge between experts, teams and departments
- Break down silos, remove bottlenecks and bridge communication gaps
- Identify informal experts, thought leaders and key information brokers
- Cultivate communities of practice and networks of excellence
Knowledge is informal
The value of effective knowledge management is known to every organization. The ability to capture, develop, share, and use a company’s intellectual assets have a direct impact on innovation, productivity and performance. What many companies do not realize is that knowledge and knowledge processes are mostly informal. Creation, distribution, application and evaluation of knowledge are dynamic in nature and rarely follow the assumed process models.
Know your Knowledge Network
In order to improve knowledge management it is necessary to understand the knowledge flow between people and teams and align it with the organization’s processes and goals. Use Keynetiq to map your knowledge network and optimize it based on real data and analytics. Keynetiq will find gaps and bottlenecks in knowledge flow, help breaking down silos and support building strategic connections between key experts and knowledge hubs.
Connect the key players
With Keynetiq you can identify employees key to knowledge sharing - thought leaders, information hubs, idea generators and knowledge brokers. You will see how accessible they are to others and to what extent they share information. By giving both a network perspective and an individual employee focus, Keynetiq allows the building of more diverse communities of practice and supports their cultivation by monitoring cohesion and network dynamics.
'Every company has two organizational structures: The formal one is written on the charts; the other is the everyday relationship of the men and women in the organization.' Harold S. Geneen
With Keynetiq you can:
- Create a detailed map of your projects and process flows
- Align interactions to reach the full potential
- Understand relational patterns within each process
- Identify critical links and strengthen key connections
- Recognize key contributors, resource hubs and facilitators
- Make better decisions on team composition and project allocation
Focus on interactions
Every organization is a collection of mutually intertwined processes and projects that result in products or services. The best performing organizations are able to optimize their processes to deliver better products and services faster and with less cost. As most processes rely on interactions between people, the key to such optimization is the right alignment of these interactions so that both people and the organization can perform to their full potential.
Realign for performance
By mapping interactions and informal relations that directly affect cooperation, workflow, information sharing and decision flow, Keynetiq helps pinpoint critical links and key connections so you understand which should be strengthened and which eliminated for highest efficiency. Use these insights to redesign your process flow for better productivity, increased innovation and higher performance.
Put the right people in the right place
Network analysis identifies top contributors, resource hubs, connectors and facilitators. Understanding your employees' social strengths will help you make more informed decisions about their functions and responsibilities. Use Keynetiq to support decisions on project placements and team allocations, positioning your people where they can have the biggest impact.
Mergers & Acquisitions
'Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.' Charles Eames
With Keynetiq you can:
- Map the organizational networks of merging entities
- Visualize vital connections before, during and after the merger
- Identify areas and opportunities for better integration
- Pinpoint barriers in information and decision flow
- Find employees who are key to transition and integration processes
- Improve talent retention and accelerate cultural integration
Mergers are tough
The primary reason for mergers & acquisitions is gaining access to key resources-knowledge, technology, clients and distribution channels. But a merger that looks great on paper, if not managed effectively, can bring more headaches than benefits. Inefficiency, missed targets and loss of key people are still a common outcome that can be avoided by using the network approach.
Use the map to get there
By mapping the organizational networks of merging entities, before and after the merger, Keynetiq shows exactly where the key connections exist and where they are missing. Understanding how collaboration, knowledge and decisions flow through the network allows for targeted interventions, realignment of resources and elimination of barriers for integration.
Involve the right people
Keynetiq identifies employees critical to the transition and integration activities- informal leaders, connectors, influencers and facilitators, so you can involve them in planning and execution of the merger. Selecting the right people to communicate and drive the integration process increases employee engagement, accelerates cultural change and improves talent retention.
