Description

Test Bank For Organizational Communication A Critical Introduction 2nd Edition By Mumby

Test Bank For Organizational Communication A Critical Introduction 2nd Edition By Dennis K. Mumby, Timothy R. Kuhn, ISBN: 9781483317069

While traditional in its coverage of the major research traditions that have developed over the past 100 years, Organizational Communication is the first textbook in the field that is written from a critical perspective while providing a comprehensive survey of theory and research in organizational communication.

Extensively updated and incorporating relevant current events, the Second Edition familiarizes students with the field of organizational communication—historically, conceptually, and practically—and challenges them to critically reflect on their common sense understandings of work and organizations, preparing them for participation in 21st-century organizational settings. Linking theory with practice, Dennis K. Mumby and new co-author Timothy R. Kuhn skillfully explore the significant role played by organizations and corporations in constructing our identities.
