      This is a one week training session. This is different than teaching a full blown course. While, I completely concur with Professor Adams and others as to the text they recommend. I very much like Cathy's recommendation of Senge. While Senge is not my personal favorite it is sitting on my bookshelf and it is something the non-academic crowd will greatly appreciate. A more recent trade publication that has come out that I find extremely useful for its gems of wisdom is Tom Peters (of In Search of Excellence fame) newest book The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue EXCELLENCE, http://www.amazon.com/Little-Big-Things-Pursue-EXCELLENCE/dp/0061894087/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1283520811&sr=8-1.  Great little tidbits that I would use in as a supplemental text in a full blown organizational communications course. This is the short of pithy wisdom that works extremely well for training sessions and the audience can easily remember.

      Good Luck,

      Hello Mr. Amin,

      I concur with Dr. Adams for an academic primer for studying and selecting information about organizational communication.  Another academic scholar with textbooks I have referenced often is Brian Spitzberg. 

      However, for a different, but very practical, approach, you may want to look at the work by Peter Senge and specifically his book, "The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of Organizational Learning".  Although it was originally based on work with American companies and opportunities for their organizational development, he has since done other work internationally. He also has an excellent field book that is an extension of his original text and has many tools for analysis and change activities.  You can google his book and name and find many articles on the internet.

      I hope this is helpful, and I wish you great success on this endeavor.
      Cathy

      Welcome Keith! 

      Although I am now retired from industry for the past five years, we have VERY similar backgrounds, experiences, and professional goals.  I am now teaching at the community college level and bringing this experience into the academic setting where we are applying organizational development principles to institutional effectiveness.  ...same theories and practices -- just a difference in semantics. 

      I'm sure you will find many of our discussions enlightening!
      Cathy
