Abstract

Is it possible to predict in advance - before people ever meet - which brand-new ties will yield more useful work knowledge? Using data from executives, we examine this question using the three main perspectives in the social networks literature: the resource (actor) perspective, relational (tie) perspective, and structural (network) perspective.
