Slides and notes for HND Students
People with shared aims coming together to achieve those aims, this involves division of labour, management of resources and external as well as internal, communication.
There are two broad divisions of communication – formal and informal the former established within structure and procedures and routed through official channels; the later arising from incidental meetings, social situations and spontaneous gatherings.
If you work in an organization, you must respect the formal channels of communication. This does not mean that there should be no informal communication, but informal methods should be supplementary. That is they mean formal communication is not functioning effectively.
Various factors impact upon an organization’s ability to communicate: size and geographical spread are two very significant factors, together with change and its implementation.
In terms of size and geographical spread, information, ideas and knowledge can more easily be shared within a close, cohesive team where the task and the needs and talents of individuals are recognized. Organization structures may be implemented to recognize this and help ease the flow of information and thereby improve communication.
