The Corporate World 2 The Corporate World: The Organizations and How It Operates There are corporations all around the world that spring up and fall down everyday.

I am looking at the classic theory displayed within CPK and if communication is epiphenomenal. Classical theory is concerned with the structure and process of an organization.
