Abstract

Managers spend up to 80% of their time in communication. New media now offer alternative means of communication within organizational contexts. Promoting effective communication using the new media is a fundamental issue for managers and researchers alike. This paper proposes an approach to considering the affect of building a shared basis for effective communication using the new media in response to current theories on media choice and effective communication.
