Based on the theory of organizational social networks and combined with six companies' case study of social network structure. We conduct a comparative study on the structural differences of cross-function advice network and intelligence network from the point of density, group degree centrality and group betweenness centrality. The results reveal that: the density of advice network is lower than the density of intelligence network; in the aspect of the group degree centrality and group betweenness centrality, advice network is higher than intelligence network. Finally, we discuss implications of the conclusions in understanding the transmission of information, organizational communication and knowledge management.
