Chapter 5Selecting and Using Communication Technologies, pp.95-119

***Discussion 1: Proper Channels***
Technology has the ability to complicate the communication process in the workplace. Clampitt explained that in many instances, leaders place too much weight on one type of communication channel, when another would be more appropriate. Identify an occasion when a leader (a) used the proper channel and (b) used an improper channel when communicating with followers. Use the sender, message, receiver model (figure 5.1) to explain why you believe that particular channel was a success or failure.

Chapter 6-Managing Data, Information, Knowledge, and Action, pp. 121-150

***Discussion 2: Southwest Airlines***
In chapter 6, Clampitt explained that only 50% of the decisions made were ever fully implemented and sustained. Southwest Airlines was used as an example of this in the book because of its success in knowing what to do and doing it, although other airlines have not been as successful, even with Southwests management approach at their fingertips. Find and describe an example of an organization, or a department of an organization, where decisions were made by leadership, but were never fully implemented and sustained. Why do you believe there was such a gap in the knowledge-action relationship? (Your example can be from a case study you find elsewhere, or an example from your career experience.)
