Shape Up or Ship Out: Social Networks, Turnover, and Organizational Culture

Coauthor(s): Paul Trowbridge.

Abstract:
This paper considers a formal model of cultural transmission in organizations, examining the interplay of structured social influence and organizational demography. A set of focused and fine-grained computational experiments elucidates this model's assumptions, facilitates deeper explanations for some of its behavior, and explores the robustness and scope conditions of previously published conclusions. In doing so, this investigation highlights several important issues in the design and evaluation of computational experiments.
