Communications in an Organisation (e-learning)
This course is different to most communication courses in that it focuses on the way that communications and information are managed within an organisation rather than personal communication techniques.
If you have management responsibilities and / or a role that includes managing communications and information, this course will help you understand the different types of information available, where and how to find information, the basics of research methodologies and how to use information effectively within your organisation.
The course last between 25-35 hours and is provided in an e-learning format so you can learn at home, at a pace to suit you. Every Pitman Training centre also has Course Advisors, so there is always additional support on hand should you feel it necessary. The course comprises eight modules on the following subjects:
• Communication Barriers
• Management Research
• Sources of Information
• Understanding Quantitative and Qualitative Data
• Communication Systems and Processes
• Workplace Communication Structures
• Culture in the Workplace
• Adapting to Improve Your Workplace Communication
The course is highly practical in nature – it is packed with hints and tips to solve real-life work problems including quizzes to help reinforce your learning as you go.
