Abstract

Centrality is one of the effective indices to measure organizational structure. Freeman once proposed a set of centrality indices including degree, closeness, and betweenness. However, Ito discussed the implications of centrality, and found that differences exist even when the centrality is same. In this paper, the authors collected the data of transactions and cross shareholdings from Mazda's Keiretsu Yokokai, and calculated the structural importance based on the new method, so-called SNW model. Furthermore, the authors discussed the implication based on the results of correlation coefficient between the SNW results and corporate performance such as sales and profits. This paper provides a new perspective to discover the structural importance of the network organizations.
