BACKGROUND David Krackhardt collected cognitive social structure data from 21 management personnel in a high-tech, machine manufacturing firm to assess the effects of a recent management intervention program. The relation queried was "Who does X go to for advice and help with work?" (KRACKAD) and "Who is a friend of X?" (KRACKFR). Each person indicated not only his or her own advice and friendship relationships, but also the relations he or she perceived among all other managers, generating a full 21 by 21 matrix of adjacency ratings from each person in the group.
