Social Network Analysis is an increasingly important part of a broader 'toolbox' of evaluation methods available to R&D policymakers to support decision-making. The aim of this research is to be an accessible, 'beginner's guide' to social network theory and application in the area of mobile telecommunication research and development (R&D) decision-making. This research suggests the methodology of investigation into new technology, and the methodology suggested by this research is believed to be a meaningful first step toward the establishment of the information analysis structure, which is in desperate need.
