Examples of Organizational Communication Technology


Neden for er tabel 13.1 fra Kathrine Millers Organizational Communication gengivet.

Selv om den er hentet fra 5th edition der er udgivet i 2009, så er det påfaldende så meget det ligner et historisk arkiv. Fordi de enkelte teknologier er så nøje beskrevet. Og fordi der helt åbentlyst er nogle stykker som ikke  optræder.

Det kan forekomme  som en selvfølgelighed hvad vi har med at gøre. Men det kan også opfattes som en kvalitet i sig selv, at vi gør os den anstrengelse faktisk at redegøre for hvad vi har med at gøre. Det historiske og det aktuelle blik bliver skærpet.
