The paper 'Cadbury Communication Systems Discourses and Ideologies' is a great example of a Management Case Study. Communication and communication systems are crucial as they determine how information is gathered, shared, and used for specific intended purposes. Communication varies in the form of different platforms and is determined by the intended audience and the effectiveness it is intended to achieve. In this context, communication can take different scopes and themes which may be educative, informative, persuasive cautionary among other themes. Basically, it is how information is relayed through communication that determines whether these purposes are met according to plan and expectations.
In every form of communication, there are several ideologies and discourses that form the underlying basics that achieve the initial objectives. For instance, the ideologies used in a sensitization campaign are different from those used in an educative one. There may be some similarities but in the methodology but there are aspects that differentiate each form. In all these forms of communication, it is apparent abut the complexity of the process. A lot of dynamics come into play with the different forms of communication if effective results are to be attained.
Factors such as as culture, norms, and values have to be put into consideration (Mules, Thwaites, & Davis, 2002, p. 4). The intended audience is also a critical aspect that consideration is necessary and essential. Different social structures call for different communication strategies and ideologies. It is, therefore, critical that communicators understand the structures and their dynamics in order to take full advantage and avoid communication mishaps during the actual process.
