Information flow is the lifeblood of every organization, whether passing verbally, electronically, or via hard copy. The clarity, accuracy, and conciseness of information passed as well as the quality of understanding by the intended receiver(s) determine, in part, the effectiveness of transference by the overall communications network. The fluidity of the system, formal and informal, composed of people, applications, hardware, and paper, serves as the remaining factor in the organization’s communications effectiveness.
While critically important to every organization’s success, variations between individual knowledge, experience, and motivation, creates differences in perception that makes all communications difficult. Similarly, differences between the organization’s computer applications and hardware systems employed challenge the smooth, unaltered passage of data and information.
