Communication Channel Scenarios
In business and social environments good communication is vital. It is therefore of great importance to produce viable channels of communication when addressing situations, to effectively transmit a message clear from barriers that may cause distortion. Author Robins (2011) presents three scenarios requiring a proper form of communication to address each situation.
The first scenario presents a situation requiring a formal channel of oral communication conveyed through group discussion. This would be the most efficient means of communication to best facilitate strategic planning within the time frame given as stated in the first scenario. This channel of communication proves to be most beneficial, because it is direct and promotes speed and feedback with the least amount of distortion among team members. The composite of team ideas should then be placed in the written format of a marketing plan. Author Robins (2011) suggests that “written communications are more likely to be well thought out, logical, and clear.” Once completed, the final written layout of execution should be submitted to the Vice President of Operations by email.
The second scenario presents an IT issue affecting all levels of a business. I would contact the IT department utilizing the channel of oral communication to efficiently address the issue, while receiving immediate feedback. I would then relay the new login name and password to all employees by channel of written communication in the form of an email requiring receipt of review. This method of communication would allow parties of interest to be notified of the new information at the click of a button. Thus, allowing the employee accessibility to reference back to the new login information when needed.
As presented in the third scenario, I believe that oral communication would be the best way to…...

Then again, if the candidate is dressed appropriately and looks clean, that appearance will give a better impression. Listening process occurs when the encoded message from the sender become decoded, then the receiver can respond and provide feedback to the original sender. “The listener provides reinforcement for verbal repertoires in the form of providing access to a preferred item or generalized reinforcement” (Lawson). The listening and communication process has many channels, which affect the listening and responding. Whether it is by making a call, typing a text/email, or face-to-face interaction, these are channels in which the message being sent travels through. Then the receiver can respond and provide feedback to the original sender. With using these channels there is always room for miscommunication.

...Case Study Analysis for ABC, Inc. COMM/215 UOP January 9, 2012 Korijna Valenti Introduction During my reach into the hiring issues at ABC Inc., it was found necessary to research and read more in today’s hiring process with the current job market. The following is an introduction of one specific company that recently requested a case study of a current internal hiring process that took place or did not take place. In this situation, a new campus recruiter was expecting to bring on 15 new hires to complete for orientation to work in the Operations department. When the operations supervisor contacted the new recruiter and checked on the status of the recruiting process, they were assured that all requirements would be in place. The recruiter went to finalize the necessary paper work that would typically be in place for new hire orientation, only to discover that there was not a defined process or checklist. Background Because Carl (the recruiter) was new to ABC Inc., he was under the impression there should be a plan of action defined for how to complete a new hire. With this, Carl should have first noticed a lack of organization in which there should be a process flow to take him from requisition, to recruitment and the matching up a candidate with the job opening. When he pulled out the new trainee’s files, it was discovered that some of the files did not have completed applications or transcripts and none of the trainees had been sent for a......

Mass Comm Final

...Mass Comm Final Paper Mass communication is typically recognized as the process of producing and distributing information, ideas, opinions, values and entertainment from a single, but regularly difficult, organization or source, through print or electronic channels, to large numbers of people. Mass communication channels or media include newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, film, sound recordings and the Internet. Over the past four centuries mass communication has gained in importance and influence. It is an essential building block in the construction of human culture and civilization. Communication is essential for nourishing and transmitting culture, sharing knowledge, entertaining, envisioning futures, and motivating action. From the emergence of our earliest ancestor Australopithecus Africanus about five million years ago in Africa, the human species has used its ability to communicate to survive in harsh environments and populate planet Earth. The ability to communicate facilitated the sharing of information on food sources, contributed to the security of the species, and provided tools for articulating relationships between and among different groups of humans. Archeologists and anthropologists have concluded that the development of signs, signals and speech among proto-humans and early humans was in response to the need to store memory and distribute knowledge – a prerequisite for the survival of the species. Communication is essential to social and......

On the other hand, you might think that the company is simply being greedy by charging what the traffic will bear. Price cut: on the one hand, you might think that you are getting a better deal on an exclusive product. However, you would think that the quality has been reduced, and the brand’s luxury image might be tarnished. -Competitor reactions to price changes 2. Responding to price change: [Figure 9.5] >Public policy and pricing: Prohibited and censored by ACCC [Figure 9.6] 1.

...Revised Case Study Analyst Paper James Demencius COMM/215 June 23rd, 2014 Mrs. Oleah Morris Leave No Man Behind Even though The United States should not make deals with Terrorists, All Service Members from Wars and Conflicts deserve to and should be brought back to the United States. Services Members should never be left and forgotten in foreign countries; because they preserve our freedom so we should do whatever is possible in preserve theirs when they are captured. All Service Members captured or detained during times of War and Conflicts should be repatriated back to the United States as soon as the War or Conflict has been completed or when an exchange can be completed by both Governments. During past wars the United States has participated in Prisoner exchanges. Thirty Americans were among the 100 prisoners exchange between North Korea and the United Nations in 1953 (BBC Home, 2005). In 1973 the United States and Vietnam conducted a prisoner exchange of 142 men. (Sterba, 1973). If these practices were used in the past then why are they not acceptable in today’s society? There are a lot of things that we can say that we do not agree with what our President has done and not done, but this is one thing that he did correctly; freeing our Prisoner of War from rebel forces. I agree Congress was not aware of what was going to happen and they did not have a say so in the exchange but this has happen before with other Presidents as well. Whether or not if there......

...timeslots and assigning a timeslot to each user. GSM operates at the 900 MHz and the 1800 MHz frequency band in Europe and Asia, and at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz in some parts of the Americas including the USA and Canada. It is possible for users to use their mobile phones when travelling to other countries: dual-band, triple-band, and quad-band phones can operate at different frequency bands (Wikipedia), (India Infoline, 2002). 2.1.2: GPRS: maximizing the GSM network GPRS may be considered as an overlay network on the GSM networks that maximizes the potential of GSM networks. Instead of using the voice channel for data transfer, GPRS is packet based. Data transfer rates can theoretically reach up to 171.2 Kbit/s (however, typically it runs at 53.6 Kbit/s), and GPRS users are constantly connected to the internet, paying only for data that is transferred. This speed depends on the channel encoding used. There are four encoding schemes, from slowest to fastest: CS-1, CS-2, CS-3, and CS-4. The transfer speed can be adapted depending on the mobile location, when near a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) CS-4 is available, but the further away from a BTS, the slower the encoding will be. The encoding schemes and their speeds are given in Table 1. When using all eight timeslots, the theoretical maximum speed is 8*21.4 = 171.2 Kbit/s. Different GPRS classes are defined, differing in the number of timeslots available for downloads and uploads. The lowest class, class 1, has only one slot for......

...Because there are so many ways they can communicate with each other. Wal-Mart divided the channels of communication into two categories from the most important to the less important way to communicate. These categories are physical media channel and mechanical media channel (commitment AB, 2008). Physical Media Channel is when the person who is speaking can be heard and seen by their employees. This method of communication is used when the person receiving the message expect to get physical communication especially when dealing with concern messages and the employees want to hear it from their manager face to face. Under this channel there are so many ways for managers to communicate with employees, management team and other organization. These physical media channels that is used for communication is through large meetings, department meeting, video conferences and viral communication (CAB, 2008). Mechanical Media Channel is the second type of communication channel that Wal-Mart uses to communicate with management, employees, and other organizations. This communication channel means there are a lot of electronic and written channels that is used for message or giving a deeper knowledge on how to communicate better with each other. There are so many different ways management can communicate under mechanical media with their management team, employees and organizations. The different channels of communication are email, internet, personal letters, weekly news letters,......

...communication channels to use. I will also discuss some factors to consider when given the diversity of the group, and how to ensure that my message that I will be giving is effective. According to Locker and Keinzler (2008), the first step in analyzing an audience is to determine who the audience is. Identifying the audience and their motivations will assist you in learning how to reach them, and what messages to use to accomplish the task (Locker & Keinzler, 2008). Audience Characteristics Determine my Audience. The first step in developing my presentation, I will have to determine who my audience is. This is to ensure that I deliver an effective and clear presentation, with the focus on who is receiving the message. I am already aware that the audience consists of stakeholders, managers, salespeople, and customers. Therefore, given the audience, I can presume that I will be expecting a diverse group of people attending my presentation. Some of the characteristics I will have to consider may be demographic, to include age, sex orientation, ethnical backgrounds, or even occupations (THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI, n.d.). Gathering this type of information is considered demographic analysis (Skinner & Windley, 2010). I will also have to determine the group’s specific interest in the information that I will be providing in my quarterly sales presentation.

...Introduction to Comm Paper # 1 Meaning of Communication: Power and Control Communication can be described as something that is everything and everywhere. Communication can be looked at as not only something that happens between human beings, but something that occurs between all living organisms. When communication occurs words are not the only thing that is being transferred. Communication can be the exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior. In order to have communication, there must be understanding. When understanding is present, more effective communication can occur. Communication to me is far beyond the words that are being said. I think a lot can be told through expressions in the face and tone of voice that is being used. The verbal part of communication is a main piece to the process, but you can tell a lot more of how the person feels or get a good sense of what is being said through the tone and facial reactions that you see. Communication is far more complex than the way I look at it in the paragraph above. Communication can also be traced back through culture and experiences. When looking at culture, it is easier to look at where communication came from. Within each culture there must be one language which will serve as the means of communication. Culture helps define communication because culture helps a society share the same ideas, customs, and beliefs. When two people (or things) share the same......
