Abstract

This paper presents a social network approach to help the government in their transformation to a leaner organization. We will first explain how social network analysis can contribute to this transformation. After that we will present some results from a pilot study that was conducted in Enschede Zuid in the Netherlands. We will conclude the paper with some remarks regarding our experiences and a future outlook for this approach towards a lean local government that acts as a director, rather than as a player in the field.
