This study examined the relationship between re-invention implementation and employee communication network variables (activity, size, diversity, and integrative ness) in a field study of 137 employees from a corporate office. In this organization, one employee discovered an improved method (a re-invention) for using a new computer system. Multiple regression analysis revealed significant positive relationships be tween three network factors (network diversity, network integrativeness and network size) and the speed with which employees implemented the re-invention.
