BUS5475 Organizational Communications, Collaboration and Social Networking
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 relation¬ship 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.
