Communication is perhaps the most important tool in achieving effective project coordination. Coordination and communication are closely related, but are distinct in their respective scopes. Coordination includes the broad range of project activities related to the management of the people and resources. Communication is the flow of information to support project activities, as practiced in meetings, telecommunications and written documents. In this paper, I will discuss a business problem of D-Link system inc. and decision making steps in order to resolve the issue.
In today's high tech communication environment, it is hard to believe that effective communication is still a major challenge facing organizations. Our modes of communication have come a long way from the pen and paper, smoke signals, telegraph, and pony express. Today, we enjoy the convenience of technological devices such as cell phones, computers, and faxes, which allow us to be globally connected within seconds.

The process by which information and feelings are shared by people through an exchange of verbal and non-verbal messages.

It also creates management software and network access servers. Even though the company is young, but it has attained a massive expansion in the last decade. (Ferrell, 1994)
The networking industry is a tremendously fast rated business. The customers are well educated about the market and extremely demanding (Eden, C, ET all 2004). They can easily switch to one of the several participants. The competition is extremely hard-hitting with more companies stirring into the networking industry. D-Link may go down because of high prices, inflexibility, overconfidence and lack of communication with its consumers. The major problem faced by the organization is communication barriers. They were lacking in communication with their end users.
On the other hand, the economic conditions are favorable and through globalization and product innovation D-Link will be able to fight its ...
