Join the Weak Ties and Innovation Research Project team as they report out their research findings of this three year project. Weak ties are known to have non-redundant knowledge which can potentially lead to innovation or hybrid solutions. As the team explored this subject, issues of trust and organizational design were examined as they related to utilization of weak ties within organizations. The team will report on key knowledge and insights learned and also introduce a trust evaluation tool that will be explored further in their breakout session.
