Communication strategy is a coherence linkage never to be overlooked. Communication needs to be comprehensively planned and spontaneous, as well as top-down and bottom-up.

Communication processes, including the target audience, the message, the means of communication, the frequency, the rationale, and the selection of communicators, must be tailored to each purpose and constituency.

Understand EGA of Your Audience

Top organizations have a communication process that communicates the knowledge and information that people need in a way that they understand and can apply to their job.

Communication is neither a separate nor a periodic task. Use every means available to let everyone working with you know your plans and your reasons. A manager should provide team members with the information they require to do a good job, communicating with them frequently, and giving them clear guidelines on the results that are expected.

Communication is a two-way relationship, Establish an enabling environment so others could give you the information you need. Use feedback to make certain that communication has become understanding and consensus. Practice management by wandering around (MBWA). 

Communicate with reports and benchmarks that track business progress and anticipate issues and opportunities, for example:

  • the annual budget

  • monthly measurements and benchmarks requiring action

  • key weekly measurements on which action can be taken.

Focused meetings can also foster clear effective communication, and spark action.
