This unit introduces students to the main approaches to the study of organisational communication from various perspectives including critical studies, cultural studies and postmodern theory. It will examine the nature and function of organisational culture and the role of communication in cultural change within organisations during periods of transition, mergers, technological innovations and globalisation. Taking a global perspective, the unit introduces students to the issues relevant to the international multicultural workplace as well as those of power, ideology and hegemony within organisations and society. It critically analyses how communication technologies change the nature of work and organisations from the point of view of the individual and discusses the importance of member involvement in the change processes.
