Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper identifying and describing how information is used and how it flows in an organization.
Weegy: The Communication Flow in the Organization The communication flows in various directions: downward, upward, and crosswise. [ Downward communication : Downward communication flows from people at higher levels to those at lower levels in the organizational hierarchy. This kind of communication exists especially in organizations with an authoritarian atmosphere. The kinds of media used for downward oral communication include instructions, speeches, meetings, the telephone, loudspeakers, and even the grapevine. Examples of written downward communication are memoranda, letters, handbooks, pamphlets, policy statements, procedures, and electronic news displays. It is done to pass on the decisions and policies of the company to the cadres. Worst is the feedback about their work. This performance assesment is the trickiest part of downward communication. The skill needed here is to never to be harsh. You have no business if you give up under the weight of the argument. In downward communicaton the last laugh should always be yours. that happens when you are empathetic and friendly with your staff. Upward communication: Upward communication travels from subordinates to superiors and continues up the organizational hierarchy. Some tips to help you communicate better with your boss include the following: ? Be sure your message is important; your boss’s time is limited. ? Be sure the information is accurate and complete ? Be brief. ? Communicate both good and bad news ? Communicate regularly ? When you present a problem, suggest potential solution. ? Make an agenda; some bosses appreciate receiving a list of topics you will discuss in advance so that they, too, can be prepared ? Be sure your timing is right; trying to present information to your boss at wrong time can derail the communication process. ? Establish clear objective; know in advance what you want to accomplish during your talk with your boss. ] (More)
