Communication in its most literal sense is exchange and expression of ideas. Since the evolution of human civilization, there has been some way of communication. How did the earliest humans communicate? Did they use a combination of gestures, sound which expressed ideas? Well! In its crude form, individual sound, gestures were used to relate to ideas, which as evolution happened were combined, with multiple sound, gestures for better communication.
The communication used by early humans had limitations, as it could only be used between individuals in vicinity. Would there be communication between individuals who were far away? If so, would the communication be limited? History suggests, as evolution happened animals, and later human messengers were sent for communication purposes. This was also, though, privilege of the nobility and higher strata of the society. How did the people in other classes communicate? What were the means used by them?
Before the advent of early telecommunication systems; audio messages such as coded drum beats, long-blown whistles and loud whistles were used. Following this advancement in telecommunication technologies led to the use of visual signals such as beacons, smoke signals, semaphore telegraphs, signal flags and optical heliographs. As technology advanced further and so did telecommunication systems, which use telephone, telegraph, networks, radio, microwave transmission, satellites and Internet.
The communication systems used in modern times are a combination of telecommunication, electronics and Information Technology. It is a complex science, in which transfer and receive of signal happens in fraction of seconds. The devices which are used in modern telecommunication systems have very large integrated electronic circuits which enable receiving and sending signal at incredibly fast speeds. To understand the concept better, the cell phones which are the most sought medium of communication in modern times, have a transmitter and receiver. The device has integrated electronic circuits which receive and send signal from the nearest mobile tower at fraction of seconds.
Technology has enabled us to communicate anytime, anywhere. It has taken over all barriers which were faced by earlier means of communication with respect to time and cross border communication. Communication using the Internet, such as email, social media is the most used means of electronic communication. Communication through email, which became popular in the mid 1990s, has been surpassed by all other means of communication.
Is email the only way of electronic communication? What are the other means of communication used for business purposes? Other means are there such as voice mail, snail mail which can be alternated with email. But email remains the de facto means of communication for all businesses. Is email an effective means of communication? What does email offer which is missing in other means? The first and foremost advantage of email is it allows combination of text, video and audio which can be sent to multiple people at one time.
Though electronic communication mainly email offers numerous advantages, it has to be used in a way which is most effective for business communication. What are the pitfalls which users of electronic communication need to be wary of? In any email message, the language should be clear and well understood to save from the subtle traps; message should be well constructed which balances courtesy with efficiency; message should express respect for other person’s view to prevent any kind of tiff; voice message should be clear and detailed to urge receiver to call back; incoming calls should be answered effectively to make good impression on the caller; unnecessary calls should be blocked to avoid interruptions and some more. Clear and effective communication is the mantra, which cannot be replaced by any practice for a successful business. http://www.isbm.ac.in/our-campuses/isbm-pune-nande/school-of-technology.
