IMAGINE a world where the work we do can be based on visibility to all the ways we are connected to the people, organizations, resources, ideas and perceptions we depend on to truly thrive.
WE NEED BETTER VISIBILITY
into how these complex networks are functioning, and the complete picture that affect the positive outcomes our work depends on.
WE SHOULD HAVE BETTER TOOLS
to understand people’s personal support networks, and better tools for organizational thinking, so we can work together to build more adaptable systems.
Our data dashboards let you explore networks in your neighborhoods, cities, and states. It also provides a place to store and manage all of your own network data, generate reports, and compare across networks.
The Partner TooL
The Partner Tool allows organizations to track their connections among one another, using social network analysis. The user begins by modifying our validated survey, then uses our online data collection platform, and end with an easy to use analysis tool.
PERSON-CENTERED NETWORK APP
The PCN App empowers a person to draw their social connections, identifying their personal strengths and potential gaps. The tool is interactive and encourages the person identify their social determinant of health needs, from their own perspectives, identifies levels of risk, and then offers solutions for individuals to connect with resources to strengthen their social connectedness.
The VNL Learning Lab is the space where we gather with our partners and customers in trainings and workshops to share best practices for expanded impact and real-world examples in the practice called Network Leadership.
Connected community lab
A core offering of our Connected Community Lab - The Forum - breaks down silos and provides a platform to learn from our fellow network aficionados from different disciplines on pertinent topics we have in common.
Network data is complicated in nature, and it can be difficult to understand how to fully utilize this data. We offer consulting services to build the capacity of people and organizations to not only understand their network analysis, but how this data can be used to improve their collaborative or outcomes.
