In 2002, we published the last of three books (L. Grunig, J. Grunig, & Dozier) resulting from a $400,000 grant from the IABC Research Foundation for a research project to explain why communication has value to an organization and to identify the characteristics of an organizational communication function that increased its value. Read the first page

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 4 Jan 2011
By A J S
Format:Hardcover
You'd have thought that a publication from the IABC would be packed with practical, valuable and experienced advice, not frustrating generalisations. What I found most annoying were all the promises it makes throughout: 'you'll learn this and we'll tell you that' which turn out to be false predictions. Perhaps it just tries to cover too much....

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Highly Relevant 10 Jun 2010
By Jeffrey Swystun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This detailed effort works both as a reference on individual topics or as a complete read. Indeed, I initially read it cover-to-cover and refer to it often for specific guidance. It is a collection of articles and papers from some very bright people who share my impatience for generic instruction in the area of communications. I especially enjoyed "The Corporate Communicator: A Senior-Level Strategist" by Nick Durutta who argues the importance of 'communications' having a seat at the executive table.

Given this was published in 2006, many of the contributions were probably sourced or written in 2005 so the book does need an update. Five years ago digital communications were nowhere near as influential as they are now and requires a section unto itself. I also find that breaking out Public Relations as a separate entity is growing old in the modern organization and communication structure - it is no longer about sending out press releases - it is about creating content that connects people with people not just people with brands.

Also the brand area needs a complete re-write based on the development of more sophisticated brand-building techniques than are currently covered. On the positive side, the focus the book gives to internal communications is very beneficial and that critical area will never diminish in importance. Overall, it is a very handy compilation.
