What is it about?

This study considers the impact of two issues that can arise in networked community change efforts on information sharing network efficiency: an unsuccessful organizer and stakeholders who are not on the same page. We identified that when these issues occur together they present the most substantial threat to efficient information sharing and that stakeholders who are not on the same page pose a larger threat to efficiency than an unsuccessful organizer.

Understanding the challenges these networks can face and how they impact efficiency for information sharing can inform the development of effective practices for these efforts.
