PERSPECTIVES 17 Communication as a Process Identifying communication as a process is one of the most important additions to communication theory in recent years. Early examinations attempted to provide models isolating the important factors in order to understand and quantify or qualify the impact of various communication behaviors. Three different stages can be identified in the model developing process. The first models of communication were linear in nature and involved tracing a one-way flow of messages with the speaker or sender developing or encoding a message that would be sent over a channel or channels to be received by a listener or receiver.

One consists of the groups within the organization and the other consists of the dyadic or individual relationships (Bertlanffy, 1968). The elements of these two subsystems are discussed in detail when we examine organizational communication concepts throughout the remainder of this text. The system called the organization also has formal structure with definite lines of responsibility and authority. These often have been the basis for organizational charts, which define the formal lines of authority and responsibility within an organization.

Several important systems concepts are worthy of additional discussion. Openness All human organizations function in varying states of openness or responsiveness to their environment, because their boundaries are permeable and they constantly are engaged in interactions. When the organization tends toward isolation from its environment, it moves toward a closed status (Bertlanffy, 1968). Actually, organizations cannot remain isolated for long because they are highly dependent on the consumer, supplier, and often government for their growth, stability, or survival.
