You will prepare and submit a term paper on Theories of Communication. Your paper should be a minimum of 2000 words in length. This department would act as a link between the management, customers, and employees of the organization. For example, the department will provide information that comes from the management to the employees, while at the same time it will relay any information it has from the employees to the management. This process will make it possible for an organization to achieve its objectives, because of efficient information flow.

However, in my own opinion, the theories of information that exist do not adequately explain the importance and the process of communication. This is because they are developed from different perspectives. On this basis, therefore, I would develop my own theory of communication, by borrowing ideas from two well-known theories of communication, such as dramatism theory and speech codes theory.

Dramatism theory was developed by Burke, and it bases its assumptions on the idea that it is important to view everything in life as a drama. In this view, there is a real-life plot, setting, and actors. This theory views the daily life of an individual through three areas, namely. identification, guild redemption, and the dramatistic pentad. Under identification, Burke denotes that the person listening to the speaker must connect with him, for communication to happen. For example, a professor explains a piece of literature that a student finds boring (Schulz, 33).

Afterward, the same professor explains how he never liked the piece of literature, but after carefully analyzing the contents of the literature, he found out that it contained relevant ideas on how to live. This made him love the literature that he is currently teaching. The second explanation will make the student connect with the professor because he or she faces the same problem he had. On this basis, therefore, the process of identification occurs.

Dramatic pentad involves the integration of the elements of drama, which are, the agency, the purpose, the act, the scene, and the agent. For instance, in analyzing the speech of a president, it is important to consider the following factors. who is talking, where the speech is taking place, what was happening to ignite the speech, in what manner was the event happening, and what the reasons for the occurrence of the event. The guild redemption cycle identifies the purpose of a piece of communication (Griffin, 26).
