Summary

For courses in Speech and Organizational Communication

 

Communication as the key to effective organizational functioning

Organizational Communication: Foundations, Challenges, and Misunderstandings explores organizational communication from the perspective of all organizational members — not just management — utilizing interviews to evaluate communication and misunderstandings. Modaff, Butler, and DeWine center their perspective on the concept of misunderstandings, which highlights the idea that communication in organizations is inherently problematic. This focus positions communication at the center of organizational life, and shows the reader how and why communication can serve to create and resolve misunderstandings of all types and in every aspect of organizational functioning. The Fourth Edition provides a foundational overview of the field and intersperses the discussions with excerpts from interviews conducted with more than 200 leaders and workers in a variety of organizations.

 

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.
