6.4 Organizational and Strategic Communication
Organisations are increasingly taking leaps from one-way announcements towards dialogue and co-creation of the reality. This involves a shift from information delivery towards participatory ways of communicating and working. To enable successful changes of strategies and business practices, organisations are expected to communicate their intentions proactively and efficiently. Stakeholder dialogue and listening are prerequisites for organizational renewal.
