Organizational communication must not be directed towards individuals alone, but must be carried out effectively with groups – formal and informal – which exist in the organization. Groups have characteristics in and of themselves; some are composites of the characteristics of the individuals who make up the group, and some are unique to the group and may not be represented by anyone within the group.
