Communicating – How Things Have Not Changed

Over the past few decades business communication technology has changed dramatically. Only a few decades ago, long distance telephone calls were expensive. They were rare and rationed. They had to be planned out to maximize the result and minimize the cost. Now, we think nothing about long distance communications. Now, even the telephone risks becoming obsolete.

What has not changed is the human aspect of communication. We as people send messages and hope that recipients actually hear what we intended. With all the communication coming at us today, individual messages can be lost. In business, we have built all sorts of management practices around communication, some good, some bad.
