Message-attitude-behavior relationship : theory, methodology, and application by Donald P Cushman( Book )

13 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many years, there has been a need in the social and behavioral sciences for a single volume providing a precise and careful treatment of axiomatic, causal processes, and sets-of-laws approaches to theory construction. In this volume, we have brought together applications of stochastic, path analytic, and multidimensional scaling research methodologies to advance understanding of one of the behavioral sciences' most troublesome problems: the defining of the relationship between messages, attitudes, and behaviors. Specifically, the material presented here has important implications for ongoing controversies in communication, psychology, social psychology, sociology, and anthropology regarding the relationship of alternative methods of theory construction and mathematical modeling techniques. This volume will advance understanding of alternative conceptualizations of various message strategies, cognitive and information processing models, and their relevance to the study of behavior. Social scientists engaged in behavioral research will find this comparative and integrative approach both interesting and powerful

Communication best practices at Dell, General Electric, Microsoft, and Monsanto by Donald P Cushman( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through case studies of communication best practices at Dell, General Electric, Microsoft, and Monsanto, this book provides specific and powerful theories for leadership, marketing, and stockholder communication. Best practice limitations are also revealed in the cases of IBM, the Bumper Works, and Asea Brown and Boveri, where organizational learning, a firm's timeline, and corporate culture made implementation difficult. Taken collectively, these case studies suggest several ways in which benchmarking can become an important research methodology and theorist tool for understanding excellence in organizational practice."--Jacket

Communication and high-speed management by Donald P Cushman( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High-speed management is used to competitive advantage by some of the most successful organizations in the world - General Electric; Toyota; ASEA, Brown, and Boveri; Motorola; Intel; and Matsushita. In these very successful companies fast cycle time or high-speed management translates into two important organizational capabilities. First, it creates a high level of performance that management can build into a firm's operating systems. More specifically, increases in effective communication are employed to eliminate bottlenecks, delays, and errors in production, cutting costs and improving quality. Second, high-speed management is an organizational strategy which continuously improves a firm's integration, coordination, and control systems. It transforms all of a firm's communication activities such as leadership, corporate climate, teamwork, worker and unit interfaces, process mapping, and outside linking processes into a more responsive customer adaptation system

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transitions to Competitive Government demonstrates how government can add value to a region, a nation, a state, its citizens, and their social values through speed, consensus, and performance. It does this in three stages. First, it shows competitive government to be entrepreneurial in seeking resources, jobs, and social services. Second, it provides case studies that offer examples of the challenges faced, strategies utilized, and implementing processes employed by various levels of government. Third, it explicates a global benchmarking process for evaluating government reforms and their progress in yielding increased competitiveness."--Jacket
Lessons from the recession : a management and communication perspective by Sarah Sanderson King( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the differential effects of recession on public and private sector organizations in America, Europe, and Asia. In America, the last recession led private sector firms to lower their break-even points and the government to seek new sources of tax revenue. In Europe, both the public and private sector organizations focused on the outflow of jobs and the rise in unemployment due to high labor costs, high public support program costs, and the failure of the European Community to become a Common Market. In Asia, Japan underwent a large emigration of production offshore due to the high yen to dollar ratio, a lengthy recession, and a massive government aid program which failed. In Australia and China, the economies recovered from recession and both public and private sector organizations have designed new strategies to keep the economy moving

Alternative Theoretical Bases for the Study of Human Communication: TheRules Perspective by Donald P Cushman( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three potentially useful perspectives for the scientific development of human communication theory are the law model, the systems approach, and the rules paradigm. It is the purpose of this paper to indicate the utility of the rules perspective. For the purposes of this analysis, human communication is viewed as the successful transfer of symbolic information from one person to another. Divided into three parts, this paper examines the focus of laws, systems, and rules perspectives to determine similarities and differences; reviews the previous development of the rules perspective and its application to the area of interpersonal communication; and outlines a rules theory of interpersonal communication consistent with the previous discussion. The investigation revealed that self-concept is an organized set of rules which direct human action through a cybernetic feedback system, and the rules paradigm of interpersonal communication is predicted upon the feedback approach.
