Jorge Walter, assistant professor of strategic management and public policy at GWSB, published a study in the MITSloan Management Review. The study, “Power of Reconnection – How Dormant Ties Can Surprise You,” found that dormant ties are as valuable — and often even more valuable — than current ties. Walter and co-authors found that insights from dormant ties tend to be more novel, and more efficient to get, than those from current ties. The study was co-authored with Daniel Z. Levin, an associate professor of management and global business at Rutgers Business School and J. Keith Murnighan, the Harold H. Hines Jr. Distinguished Professor of Risk Management at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
