Lesikar's Business Communication: Connecting in a Digital World, 12/e by Rentz, Flatley, and Lentz takes the solid foundational principles of this classic text and applies them to business contexts in the 21st century. While continuing to focus on careful problem analysis, adaptation of the message to the audience, and maintaining positive human relations, this edition discusses current challenges for business communicators and gives students practice meeting those challenges. Toward this end, the book maintains the realism, technological currency, and pedagogical effectiveness for which it has become well known and respected.
As with previous editions, the 12th edition prepares students to communicate in the modern workplace by first providing extensive writing advice and then providing methodical analyses of the main forms of business communication. Along the way, it incorporates a multitude of real business examples, a wide range of problem-solving cases, and a thorough treatment of technology’s role in business communication.
In addition to a full suite of teaching and testing materials, the book’s Online Learrning Center gives teachers easy access to an online blog, Bcomm Teacher Xchange, that will keep them abreast of the latest research and developments in the field while providing a host of practical teaching tips. Through its BC Resources link, the OLC also offers an extensive collection of Web links on multiple bcomm topics, from grammar to persuasion to research and teamwork.
