Introduction

Communications In business there are different forms of communication happening every day, there are many different ways that you can communicate with people and many different times you will need to communicate with people in business because things are always changing. You could be having a meeting with you bosses, talking to you co-worker or on the telephone talking to someone. Communication is not just talking to someone or a group of people, when you speak to someone this is known as verbal communication and there are many different for of this. There is also non-verbal communication, this is when you communicate with someone but you don't have to be speaking to him or her.

Internal communication is vary important for a business, if all the functional areas aren't communicating with each other properly they things could be disastrous. People would be over spending, ordering thing without permission, or misusing company money. The company would end up going bust.

Written communication is also used when bulletins or memos are being sent. These show that going to happen in the day and what's happened in previous days. This is a good way to communicate in business because the workers feel that they are been told and no about what's happening in the business. There are many ways to use ITC to communicate in business. ITC will be used when sending information over a long distance on a short time. This includes Internet and email. This is a new but excellent form of communication. IM will find this easier to communicate on small matter with their firms in Japan.
