This assignment has two parts.
Compare traditional communication tools with social media communication tools in no more than 175 words. What are the pros and cons of each?
Review the scenario:
One day your coworker comes into your office and informs you of a huge project that is in the process of being assigned from upper management to your department’s manager. Within 48 hours, your department manager contacts you through a text message informing you of your inclusion in this project. Unfortunately, your manager included very minimal information about project specifics, so you do not have enough information to get started on it.
Over time you’ve learned that your manager is highly political and does not pay much attention to detail. Also, he does not like his personnel reaching out to individuals outside of the department, especially his counterparts; however, you have good relationships with other departmental managers.
Write 525 to 700 words in which you:
- Explain how you would gather the information needed to start your project while navigating the tough political map.
- Select one communication tool from Part I to deliver your message and explain the rationale behind your selection.
- Describe how you would use the selected communication tool in the given scenario to deliver your message.
