The book provides: insights into the nature of the corporate communication profession; the issues that define this profession; the strategies and activities that fall within its remit; and the ways in which it can be managed and organized in companies and agencies alike.
It addresses three important questions:
- What is corporate communications, and how can it be defined?
- What strategies and activities are central to this profession?
- What is the organizational location, status and role of this profession?
Important issues (e.g. corporate social responsibility, stakeholder management, integrated communications, reputation management) in managing and organizing corporate communications are all discussed, providing practising managers with appropriate concepts, theories and tools to make better management and communication decisions. Readers will gain a greater appreciation and a more in-depth understanding of the range of topics covered in corporate communication management as well as a means to organize their thoughts about those topics.
