Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

Using social network analysis to evaluate change in a large-scale collaborative management initiative

Date: February 15, 2017
Presenter(s): Patrick Bixler

To design and implement large landscape conservation projects, individuals and agencies are increasingly organizing into networks to facilitate the exchange of ideas, build relationships, identify common interests, and solve problems of mutual interest in a landscape. Coordinating the actions of a diffuse, networked system to specific conservation outcomes poses unique challenges to measuring performance. This presentation describes the use of social network analysis as a tool to monitor and track longitudinal change in the social-governance system of a landscape conservation network, the Roundtable on the Crown of the Continent.

This webinar was presented by Patrick Bixler, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas and hosted by the Great Northern LCC.
