AOK Value Communication in Internal Publishing: The G+G Jubliee Issue
This research project states a possible way to empirically monitor various value types and their frequency in corporate communications. As an example for this method, a closed project of inter-organizational communication is selected, here: jubilee magazine issue "25 Years Health Insurance". Its actors are interviewed and several ego-networks are drawn and aggregated. The outcome is a network of value-oriented communication between the important project members. In addition, it provides a glimpse on cooperation of actors from AOK and its media agency KomPart behind the curtain of polished articles.
More information on the project can be found here.
