Internal communication represents an essential strategic lever for the motivation and involvement of the members of any type of organisation. In effect, no plan and no organisational objective can be fully developed and reached if it is not understood and shared by the people who are tasked to implement it.
It should also be considered that quality internal communication cannot limit itself to sporadic initiatives, but must be a continuous process, coherent in its development and handled in a fully managerial fashion. In order for this to happen, it is necessary for the operators in the field to be given purpose designed training to enable them to adopt an ever more strategic approach to the subject and also master new techniques linked to the development of digital technology and social media.
The Rome Business School’s Internal Communication course blends a rigorous conceptual base with concrete operational best practices, providing you with the tools you need for the correct management of internal communication based on criteria of excellence.
