Essentially, this volume of Communicare reflects on communication in organising and in organisational contexts. The spectrum includes theoretical perspectives ranging from the functionalist, systemic approaches, the rational structural tradition in organisations, to a trend in television advertising where language diversity, translation, and / or re-conceptualisation are circumvented by conceptualising a visual message devoid of voice-over. The contextual manifestation of communication can be found in areas such as stakeholder management with a focus on corporate image and reputation; in the denial of the individual and ethical considerations within a rational structural organisational context; in internal communication and competitive environments, and in visual television messages devoid of voice-over in the context of advertising.
