A Method to Quantify the Power Distribution in Collaborative Non-hierarchical Networks

Abstract

Collaborative networks are characterised by the establishment of relations in more or less hierarchical power structures. The hierarchy of the network is defined by the partners’ power degree. Hierarchical structures and associated barriers limit the decision making and discourage collaboration within partners. This paper focuses on proposing a method to allow researchers to identify the power degree of each network partner, through Markov Chains. Knowing the power distribution, helps researchers to diagnose the power balance, reconsider the status in the network and have a better view of power interaction and collaboration. Therefore, the power distribution analysis is a key issue to understand the partners’ behaviour and achieve sustainable networks.
