MM Communication

CEOs Changing view on Communication in Organization

Leaders of 21st century are facing a rapidly changing context for global business and their society. Their ability should focus on how to manage successfully their relationship with customers, investors, partners, employees and other key constituents and stakeholders at large.

The reality of global economy, the appearance and empowered of myriad of new stakeholders and the digital network revolution today are confronting a changing landscape, shaped by both internal,and external challenges.

The increasing competition in the era of free information has forced any institution, either governmental, profit or not for profit organizations to increase its relationship with its public/s. Not only the approach should be strategic, but also the fundamental philosophy of developing communication concept or public relations should be targeted to cope with the public relations challenges in a new paradigm – that is, institutionalizing public relations as a strategic management function rather than a technical tool for publication or marketing activities alone.

A corporate manager needs to have a comprehensive knowledge of management which relates to the execution of managerial function of an organization, conflict resolution or litigation that cannot be handled by a communication technician.
“Public relations should be seen as the management of communication between an organization and its publics. It is a profession with a scholarly body of knowledge. It is a management function based on strategic counselling rather than publicity alone” (Grunig, 2004).
