In this paper, we consider enterprise organization structures and communication networks obtained from email transaction data. Along with recent progress and popularization of Information Technology, social sciences have been experiencing great advances in methodology. It has become possible for researchers to utilize huge computational social data. However, there have been only conceptual studies in business school and very little quantitative analysis for enterprise organizations. We evaluate the strategic organization change with graph/network analysis of the communication network.
