BUS5475 Organizational Communications and Team Development
Communication gives form to organizations. In an information-driven business climate, organizations are complex systems of business partnerships, and a web of networked employees and teams linked via electronic information and communication systems. This course examines the ways companies self-organize in a socio-technical work environment, the nature of organizational social networking in a digital age, and the characteristics of effective interpersonal communication and relationship building in teams. Particular attention is given to the nature of workplace information flow and how to design strategic information and communication systems that enable knowledge sharing and collaboration.
