THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORGANIZATIONAL GRAPH – NODES AND EDGES – OBJECTS AND CONNECTIONS
A short but important lesson on the nerd language of the graph database software and how it is used to upgrade an org chart to an org graph. Nodes and how they are connected by edges are the programer words, inside OGraph.io we use more common words: Objects and Connections but this is a good video for orientation.
THE DEEP OVERVIEW AT 4X SPEED
This video is 4x speed giving you a full tour of the clicks,drags, etc to build nodes and connected them with edges to form the basis of an organizational graph. An org graph differs from an org chart in that it shows 14 interactions of an employee other than just who one reports to.
WHERE IS WALDO – WHAT DO WE NEED?
Let’s say that Waldo is going out for 3 months on FLMA time and we need to drill in and see what exactly Positions he is filling, what skills are needed, etc. etc. with an org graph. This is just a quick example of how you can drill down to see exactly where Waldo is in the organization, what he is doing, who is interacting with, who is doing something similar, who has the same skills, etc. etc. All with a few clicks and filters and Whamo Waldo.
"When I sat down, faced the reality, and modeled the cost to my company of not bringing new people up to speed using the 14 Point Checklist, I saw it was in the hundreds of thousands.”

“The really cool thing about using an Org Graph was to get all of our people into the game. Once our Individual Contributors saw how this was something we were doing “For Them” instead of “To Them”, they bought in and the Org Graph bloomed with amazing detail - all supplied by the people who really know what’s going on, amazing.”
- Bryan B, CEO
"Our engagement is up, our teams are more effective, people are able to go directly to the right person for an answer, when we want to change something we can SEE who it will impact and get them involved. All of this was hidden in the past behind layers of folders and files, text and outlines, never in simple diagrams and pictures, very powerful.”
- David, CEO
"The different ways to visualize the same thing really is amazing, sometimes I would look at what we created via a Hierarchical view and it was just scrambled eggs, then I clicked on Symmetrical View, and think, ah ha there it is, then we drill down with the Marquee Zoom tool and it just becomes clear, truly amazing.”
