Artifacts. values Basic assumption CHAPTER ONE THE CHALLENGES OF ORGANIZATIONAL COMMUNICATION: Organizational communication the ability of a business organization to communicate as efficiently and effectively as possible in order to achieve a company goal (my definition). Downward communication - top of the hierarchy to the bottom Upward communication - bottom of the hierarchy to the top Horizontal communication - sideways communication through a chain of command. All organizations have a hierarchy, with rules and regulations Formal networks - hierarchy rules and regulations of communication. Informal networks - shortcuts in achieving communication w/in the chain of command. Network analysi s - statistical analysis on how communication is achieved, the outcome looks more like a matrix than a triangle. We have found that the communication itself forms the organization. Interorganizational communication communication between organizations. EX: LSU to communicate with brpd and sheriff dept etc in order to run a football game. Channels of communication- email, text, fax, teleconferencing, employee handbooks, orientation, video conference. The ability to work w/ people all around the world is phenomenal. Virtual organizations people who work in different areas of the country, city, etc. you don’t necessarily have to go to a physical building to work and clock in. you work at home, no 9-5 job. You work on your own time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
