Organizational Management through Communication.
Allen, Richard K.
This book promotes professional management through the process of communication, developing communication strategies for setting goals, planning, organizing, controlling, and problem solving. The book's first five chapters, which relate organizational management to communication, include a behavioral approach to management and organizational structure, the role of communication in management, the management and control of information flows, the changing organization, and communication as a management tool. Later chapters focus on the manager as a communication strategist: the change agent, the interpersonal motivator, the small-group leader, the total organizational communicator, and the analyst and teacher. An appendix of case situations and a bibliography are included. (RL)
