The purpose of this research and workshop is to identify how the communication science discipline affects specific areas of the organization ranks and provide options to consider when measuring structural growth. The benefit of this analysis demonstrates how the rudimentary function of a core mission is able to work together and be compartmentalized for measurement but also explains how the implementation of communications theory and methods are able to assist in workplace diagnostics, training and development for an organization's communication plan. The importance of this workshop and literary analysis is to assist stakeholders and managers that maintain communication between organizational expectation, systems analysis and the unique comprehension of social behavior, attitude and efficacy. The analysis and workshop demonstrates how communication variables interact together.
