Communication as a management function
Management is transliterated as the act or process of impelling the activity of people with the aim of achieving the predetermined desired goals. Management includes functions such as decision making, planning, staffing, organizing, directing (coordination), and controlling both organizational material and human resources (Miller, 2012).

Today employees want to know what is happening in their surroundings, what their co-workers are doing and how they are participating in the organization, and how the daily functions of the organization are carried out? The manager requires more effective and logical communication in all the directions i.e. upward, downward; lateral etc. When there is effective communication in the organization it provides a bridge of understanding to people. In this way they can better understand each other. And this bridge of understanding helps them to cross the river of misinterpretation. Communication is not what

Within an organization formal and informal communication is used. Communication plays an important role in goal setting.

There are many types of communication. The first one I would like to communicate is vertical communication. The definition of vertical communication is the flow of information both downward and upward through the organizational chain of command. Some also refer to it as formal communication.

These functions are almost the same as the ones performed in the Osgood and Schramm circular model, however, the main drawback in this linear model is that it depicts communication as a one-way process where speakers only speak and never listen.

Duncan and Moriarty explain, “admittedly, there is a tendency in the study of communication to fall into the communication fallacy, which proposes indiscriminately that all human activities are driven by communication. Although that might be true in a theoretical sense, we acknowledge there are factors other than communication that drive brand value. We argue, however, that communication, because of its meaning-making and organizing functions, plays a unique role in building relationships.” (Duncan and Moriarty pp12).

A pidgin is a language which has no native speakers and was developed as a mean of communication between people who do not have a common language. A pidgin is no one’s native language. Pidgins seem particularly likely to arise when two groups with different language are communicating in a place where there is also a third dominant language. For example, on Caribbean slave plantations in the seventeenth and the eighteenth centuries, West African people were forcefully separated from others who used the same language to reduce the risk of them plotting to escape or rebel. To be able to communicate with each other, as well as their overseers, these slaves have created a pidgin based on the

AbstractThe Army uses all four functions of management through a Chain of Command. All leaders throughout the military use at least one function, but multiple leaders working together covers all functions. Always someone is planning, organizing, leading, or controlling. The reason the United States Military is so effective is because leadership and management always try to stay a step ahead. The rank structure provides a guideline to how much a soldier manages. More rank brings more responsibility, more respect, and more use of each function. Though not all functions are needed to be a manager, a good manager does need all four.

Not all planning is successful so the remaining functions can fall short of what is expected.
